Sign Up for Trunk or Treat


It’s nearly time for our 7th Annual Trunk-Or-Treat! We are looking for families to decorate their car trunks in the most fun and friendly way possible and pass out candy during the Halloween Parade. For ideas on how you can decorate your car, Google “Trunk or Treat”. You will find thousands of great ideas! Each student (approximately 300) will trick or treat at your car as they parade in their Halloween best. Please refrain from using decorations that may be scary or too spooky.


If you would like to participate, please contact Andrea Curley at 714-931-3887. All participants must arrive on the blacktop between 7:30-7:45 AM to set up. Students will begin to Trunk or Treat by 8:20 AM.
