To All Students
We will have a haunted house the week before Halloween, running through October 30. Our haunted house will be a series of refrigerator boxes (yes they will have to crawl through them). I need people to help spray paint the inside of each box black and help transform the fridge maze into something scary. We need help build, the monsters or scary bits, people to be in the haunted house, etc.
On Halloween, we will take the tram to Dragonstone. We'll sit on the beach with a bonfire. You get to grill your own hot dogs. (University students are encouraged to attend this team building exercise.) Thank you Queen Daenerys for allowing us to use your beach. I think some of our students would like to see your dragons.University Students
