The Roberts Education Association hosted a Safe Trick or Treat Night October 30th at the High School.
Numerous clubs from the OJR schools, teachers and staff filled the high school hall ways and class rooms with
special activities and treats for the visiting trick or treaters. Attendees were asked to donate non-perishable
food items to help stock the North Coventry Food Pantry
The High School and Middle School Leo Clubs and East Coventry’s Lion Cubs set up activities and
volunteered at the many festivities being held at the school.
High School Leo Advisor John McCormick said “There were a total of 17 Leos from the High School
Leo club volunteering. Plus a few more that attended on behalf of other clubs that they were members.
We handed out about 15 pounds of treats over the two hours.”
Teacher/advisor Krista Venza and a half dozen Middle School Leos collected canned goods
and passed out treats to the elementary aged trick or treaters.
East Coventry’s Lion Cubs along with advisor Casey Smith held a pumpkin bowling activity.
Trick or Treaters were awarded with a candy treat.
The Vincent Lion Cubs made decorations and posters for the trick or treat tables that were
hosted by REA members.
School Superintendent, Dr. Christian, had this to say about the evening’s activities
Last night, 842 children and 573 adults participated in the REA Trick or Treat Night at the
high school. Families donated non-perishable food upon entry. The Coventry Food pantry
and the families they serve will benefit from everyone’s generosity. Thank you to the REA
leadership as well as our faculty and staff for creating such a wonderful community event.
I received many positive comments from parents last evening praising our staff and students.
On behalf of the Board of School Directors, please accept my sincerest gratitude.
