Dear Longhorn Families,
On behalf of the PTO, we would like to invite you to our 3rd annual Neill Elementary School Trunk-or-Treat on Friday, October 18th from 5:30-8:00 p.m. There is no fee to be admitted into this exciting event! What a great opportunity for you and your child to come to a safe environment and trunk-or-treat and enjoy music for FREE!
You may ask what is a Trunk-or-Treat? A Trunk-or-Treat is a safe alternative to trick-or-treating door to door. Families come together and agree to decorate the trunks of their cars in a variety of different themes and pass out goodies or prizes to children. This year we will host our Trunk-or-Treat in the Neill Elementary School parking lot. You have an excellent opportunity to participate in this fun-filled event by registering your vehicle and paying a small fee of $10 to enter your vehicle. We will also be hosting a “Best Decorated Trunk Contest.” Remember, decorating the trunk of your vehicle is an option.
If you are not sure what you should wear, feel free to come dressed casually or wear a costume. You may also decide to purchase a Trunk-or-Treat t-shirt to commemorate this special event. The kids will also have a chance to register and participate in a costume contest and take home a prize.
The fun doesn’t stop there! There will also be carnival-style games, booths with a number of activities, a photo maze, face-painting, food, and so much more! We will only accept tickets throughout the Trunk-or-Treat event. We will be selling ticket packages at a special pre-sale price. The tickets will cost $1.00 per ticket on the day of the event, so get your tickets fast!
We will also have several items available for bidding through our silent auction. There will be items onsite as well as online. Bidding on items and events is a fun way to support and connect with members of our local community. Wait for further details regarding the silent online auction.
Finally, Trunk-or-Treat is an amazing fundraiser for the PTO that enables us to help support the teachers, staff, and the children of Neill Elementary School. There are many ways to get involved with this event including decorating a trunk, volunteering to work a booth, purchasing family contribution packages, and of course by attending this wonderful event! Your participation is an invaluable part of our fundraising efforts! The following pages will provide you with a detailed outline and information regarding all aspects of this event. If you have any questions please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate your continued support!
