So exactly how scary was the haunted house? Watch the video to find out:
The grade seven and eight Renaissance team worked for weeks in advance to plan and make the perfect haunted house a reality. From building props to setting up and decorating for the spooky adventure, the team worked together to create the haunted house for the fundraiser. Inspiration was provided by the popular blockbuster movie It with clowns featuring prominently throughout the creepy journey.
“I think that a haunted house is a great way to show our Halloween spirit and donate to a local cause,” shared one of the team members.
