Night of frights and delights at south

Terin Frodyma and Melina Herrera

Night on L street gave the South Omaha community members a lively and safe environment to trick-or-treat with students and clubs at Omaha South High Magnet.  

Over 1000 participants took part in a spooky night filled with games, candy, and laughs. There were over 200 volunteers organized by the South High Educators Rising club. This was the second year that South has held this event, hundreds of families from 21 different elementary and middle schools were in attendance. 

Volunteers from the Art club, NCPA Ambassadors, Journalism department, Student Council, South High Luvabulls, Latino Leaders, Dual Language Club and even members of the South High Alumni Association helped make this night very memorable.  

Art club helped paint faces of young trick-or-treaters, NCPA ambassadors helped recruit students for their program and our Luvabulls ran the haunted house. Many other clubs and groups ran games and fun activities for the community to enjoy. 

The event was overall very successful and hope to make next year’s event even more spooktacular.
