BAS/OAS Trunk or Treat!
Trunk or Treat is BACK, and we are thrilled to announce that BAS and OAS Elementary will come together this year for the first ever joint Trunk or Treat!!
Join us on Friday, October 29 from 6-8pm in the parking lot of OAS.
Families of Elementary students are encouraged to sign up to take part in this 'spooktacular' evening by volunteering to decorate a trunk, or just by making candy and non-candy donations to the event.
Please see attached flyer and links for additional information and to sign up to participate!
Please note, in an effort to minimize large crowds, BAS students will trick or treat from 6-7pm and OAS Elementary students will have the 7-8pm time slot. If you have students at both schools, we kindly ask that you choose only one of the time slots to attend.
