Spooky Scholars Receive a Halloween Treat!

On Halloween, the Library Scholars got a special treat from our friends at Calvin College. The students dressed up in their ghoulish, fantastic, or silly costumes and took a field trip to the college campus. There, our homework helpers from the Boer-Bennink dorm treated the Scholars and the Arts Center’s Press Club to a pizza feast! The kids ate to their hearts’ content, played games, and chilled out in true college fashion in the basement of the dorm.  

After that, it was time for trick-or-treating! For the festivities, we trekked across campus to the Knollcrest East apartments. Each Halloween, Knollcrest East hosts Light in the Night as a fun and safe way to trick-or-treat. It’s a tradition our kids look forward to every year. This year, we were wowed by amazing themed decorations in the apartments. We journeyed to Wonderland with Alice, rocketed into outer space, flew UP with Carl and Russell, and made mischief with the minions from Despicable Me. All of this excitement combined with loads of candy made it a night to remember! We appreciate our Calvin buddies so much, and we are so thankful for the opportunity to give our students positive experiences on college campuses. We can’t wait for next year!
