On October 27th all of the school clubs came together for Chaparral’s Sweet Street. Sweet Street was for little kids in the community to come to Chaparral and trick o’ treat in the cafeteria, commons, and the gym from 5:30- 7:00. The event was free, but it was encouraged to bring in non-perishable food items for the Parker Task Force and local heroes. Because of that, the members of different clubs and activities dressed up as super heroes, such as Aquaman and Spiderman. Kids were lined up from the bottom of the main staircase all the way to the 200’s hallway to go into the cafeteria and trick or treat. The children were mostly dressed up as the characters that they love, such as animals, princesses, dinosaurs, superheroes, or just relaxing in their pjs. “Sweet Street is all about giving back to the community. We’re all about trying to create a safe place for kids to go trick or treating and as a part of my project for DECA for project smiles we were just trying to spread smiles in Parker for the holiday season,” said junior Samantha Kuhns. DECA was held responsible for spreading the word to the clubs and activities to make sure that they got involved in the event. They created crafts and games and assigned all different areas for the kids to have a good time.
