The National Honor Society Haunted House

posted Nov 6, 2017, 5:47 AM by Rebekah Routos

On Saturday, October 28th the high school cafeteria was transformed into a frightfully scary haunted house.  The National Honor Society puts on this annual event to raise money to fund their community service for the rest of the year.  The 62 members of the NHS organized, decorated, advertised, and staffed the event.  The theme was “Haunted Family” and had four different rooms: Creepy Crawlies, Zombies, Crazed Clowns, and Haunted Dolls.  Over 150 visitors were led through the haunted house of terrors by their student guides.  NHS raised $665 through the event.  Next month they will use these funds to buy gifts to be distributed to needy families in our community.

Another year, another pairing party for MVHS’ Best Buddies Chapter! Best Buddies is a club that creates opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and people without IDD, to establish meaningful relationships with students they may never encounter otherwise. The Merrimack Valley chapter recently celebrated it’s third annual pairing party where buddy pairs are established for the new school year. The reveal party included team activities such as carving pumpkins, painting, cooking, and enjoying eating a candy feast as a large group. Throughout this celebration the club established goals for the year and planned future trips out into the community to have fun as an inclusive body. Their next group activity will be a McDonald’s fundraiser, at the Fisherville Road location in Penacook, Tuesday, 11/07/17, from 5-7PM to engage in meaningful conversations about the club’s mission, and show off their beautiful friendships!

As the fall season kicked into full swing, Twiggs Gallery in Boscawen helped the local community to get into the spirit: with a fun family activity. On October 1st, the event, organized by Monica Cote of Merrimack Valley High School, allowed families to spend some time relaxing and being creative. Activity options included making a custom scarecrow using clothes brought in or clothes made available by donation, face painting, or pumpkin painting. Even better, it provided something much needed; it provided funding for the MVHS chapter of the National Art Honor Society. Kaisi Adams, a junior at MV, was one of the students volunteering for the day.

“It was really just a great few hours for people to come and have fun and raise money for something they care about, you know? Seeing the kids being able to be creative and have some fun really made it great,” Adams said of the event. “I helped out with face painting, and it was just good to see the community like that.”
