Community is the cornerstone of any educational institution - and even more so to a new school. But how can you invite the community in when the restrictions say “stay out”? Easy - meet in a parking lot! Or at least that was the solution at the American School of Bahrain. As a community builder and sweet treat for all staff and families, the school hosted its inaugural Trunk-or-Treat over the Halloween holiday. Over 40 families came together with individual creative themes and welcomed students from ages 3-16 with open arms - and lots of sweet treats! Parents rolled into the parking lot before the school day had ended to begin a whirlwind of car decorating! When the final bell rang, students rushed out to find a carnival of candy-filled car trunks with themes ranging from Harry Potter and Finding Nemo to Jurassic Park and sporty skeletons!
