DCS Hosts Safe Alternative to "Trick or Treating"

Hundreds of princesses, pirates, sports cars, and minivans all made their way to the Dade Christian School campus, on Monday, October 31 for a fantastic night of games and “trunk or treating”. Before heading outside to the parking lot, guests entered into the newly renovated Crusader Cafeteria and had the opportunity to purchase a delicious spaghetti dinner sponsored by the Senior Class of 2013.
This was the second time the school hosted this event and the attendance easily doubled in number compared to last year. “We all had such a terrific time last year, so we were definitely not going to miss it. We even brought a lot of our family members and friends this year,” said Dade Christian School parent, Stephanie Andrade.

Laughter filled the night as families wandered from trunk to trunk in the school parking lot, collecting candy while socializing with other school families, church families and a host of visitors from the local community. Trunks were decorated according to every theme in the spectrum, from Mother Goose to 101 Dalmatians, and even a pirate ship made an appearance. At the end of the night, the prize for best trunk, which was a brand new iPad, was awarded to the Lupica-Tondo family for the Madagascar Circus they recreated in their trunk. “The Madagascar trunk was awesome because they had balloon animals, a popcorn machine, and it was so colorful!” said Dade Christian School student, Cristyn Myland.

“I greatly enjoy how the community feels safe and comfortable at this event on a night that many people correlate with danger,” said event coordinator, Ali Rodriguez. “Everyone was dressed up in kid-friendly costumes and they had a terrific time.” This was a wonderful opportunity for the entire community to come together and enjoy a secure and stress free atmosphere.
