Student Council on Golden Eagle Halloween Night.

Students representing many sports, clubs, and activities at Tyrone High School are excited to open their doors for the 9th annual YAN Halloween Event on Tuesday, October 25 from 5-7 pm.

At the event, student and staff groups run rooms with Halloween-themed crafts, activities, treats, and games for the children. It is open to all preschool and elementary students, fourth grade and under, and their families.

“The annual Halloween event has truly become a community staple. It is our biggest event of the year,” said YAN co-advisor Cummins McNitt. “We have many families who now use this as their only or primary trick or treat night because they know that this event is safe and fun.”

This year will be the first time since 2019 that the event is held inside the high school.

For the last two years, it was held in a drive-through format around the school due to COVID. It was still fun for the kids, but it wasn’t the same as being able to host the children inside.

The Eagle Eye will again offer free family photos at our Halloween-themed photo booth in the lobby by the high school gym.

Other organizations planning activities are the All-Eagles Club, choir/POPS, marching band, tennis, HOSA, YAN, Eagle Eye/yearbook, Nutrition Group, main office/guidance staff, football, National Honor Society, soccer, Golden Revolution, Skills USA, Aveidum, science department, cheerleaders, Student Council, and administration.

The event is free, but donations of $2 per person or $5 per family are appreciated, but not required.

New this year is a basket raffle with items donated by students and members of the community.  Tickets will be sold the night of the event at the door – 10 tickets for $5.  Click the photo gallery below to see the baskets.

All money collected at the event will go to charity.  This year it will be split between the Panzi Hospital of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the American Red Cross Hurricane Ian Relief Fund.

Children and their families are encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costumes for the event.
