Schools collaborate on Halloween

The faces behind the many masks at Truckee’s haunted house this year were those of both Tahoe Truckee High School and Prosser Creek Charter School students.

The event, which was sponsored by the TTHS leadership class and the Truckee Donner Recreation and Park District, was one of the rare opportunities that students from both school sites have had to mingle and collaborate on a project.

“It’s important that we find ways to share in our resources and community events,” said Helga Munday, whose daughter Rose – a charter school student – has worked on the project for the last two years.

“I think it’s extremely important to see the kids getting along so well and having a good time in this time of diversity,” she added in reference to the growing tension between the charter school and the school district.

“We want the community to know that our kids are here too, wanting to be involved and to help out,” she added.

Rose Munday said she hopes this is just the beginning of more collaborations and projects in the future.

“It’s been really fun being involved in this,” Rose Munday said. “Everyone is really nice and no one seems to care that we go to the charter school. I’ve gotten to see old friends, too. It seems like people don’t ask us to get involved in stuff like this very often.

Next year, Munday said she hopes that Prosser Creek might be able to have a haunted room of its own to decorate.

“It would also be fun is we could go to dances with other schools to see friends and meet new people,” she said.
