Outside points are not required; All of your points can come from inside activities. 5. Halloween Carnival-In order for this event to be a success we need your help. This will be an excellent opportunity for you to earn your three “inside” points (or more) for Honor Society. We will have several things going on in the 200 building that night. We will have Halloween crafts, games and tattoos available in the cafeteria and the hallways. We are attempting to create a haunted hall as well. A. What do we need from you??-Candy – Since we are inviting all of our feeder elementary schools, we will need lots and lots of candy. Members can earn 1 service point for each large/jumbo size (approximate value $4 - $5) bag of candy they bring. Your candy should be turned in to Ms. Richards (room 210) by Tuesday, October 27th. (Please write your name on your bags of candy in permanent marker so we will know to whom to give the points. Sponsors are not responsible for bags of candy without names on them.) You may only earn two points max for contributing candy – so two large/jumbo bags of candy per member max. B. Volunteers – We will need lots of volunteers to help with the event as well.
