The Halloween Howl is the event of the year at Lord Tennyson. It will be held on Friday Oct 28. Don’t miss it!
For the uninitiated, our school is completely transformed to a fun Halloween carnival, which you won't recognize. Games, cake walk, Von Schtinko's Lab, photo room, bingo, scary story-telling, costume contests, fortune teller, and the haunted house... do you dare to go through it? And of course, food and drink aplenty.
Doors Open at 6:30pm.
Rooms and games close by 9:00pm, prizes close at 9:15pm, and doors are closed by 9:30pm.
Remember both kids AND parents show up costume – it is so much fun!
This event CANNOT HAPPEN WITHOUT YOUR HELP. The more hands, the better. Stay tuned for sign-up info.
**Remember that volunteers who do two pre or post event shifts get a free ticket for themselves, and volunteers who volunteer the night of the Howl get in free.
