Some of the trick-or-treaters that were out on Halloween.

October 20th was the first activity night for the school year.  The drug free group began their evening event with a taco feed and then went to the activity of their choice.  Some played board games or video games and some watched movies.  Before the night was over, all the kids and adults ended up in the gym for a rousing game of scooter races, tag, tennis and hula hoop contests.  The group enjoyed spending time with their friends and scaring Mrs. Sonnen and Mr. Nuxoll with their fancy tricks on the scooters!  Their next local event will be a road rally and movie night.  On December 2nd they will be going to Lewiston for their annual Christmas shopping, movie and light trip.  For January and February they are planning a ski trip, ice skating trip, a sledding party and a trip to the elk farm. A bunko party is also in the works. The group has over 50 students from the high school. If you have any ideas for the group or wish to chaperone an activity please contact: Colleen Sonnen SDFS Coordinator or Bruce Nuxoll SDFS Advisor.
