FCCLA hosts Pumpkin Parade


Returning to school during COVID-19 has proven to be a challenge for most of us here at PSHS and has taken some of our traditions along with it. We have learned and adapted, changing old traditions into new ones

With the Trunk or Treat on hold for this year, FCCLA came up with a new way to celebrate Halloween safely and effectively. For the first time, FCCLA is hosting The Pumpkin Parade this Thursday, October 29.

For the pumpkin parade, there will be different stations set up around the front of the high school with differently decorated pumpkins and decorated “floats.” The pumpkins and floats are provided by multiple clubs here at PSHS, like, Spanish Club, Interact Club, FCCLA, Student Council, Cross Country, the basketball team, Art Club, and Poland Players. 

Mrs. Walsh, the teacher in charge of FCCLA, wanted to do something this year not only for Halloween but to help a fellow Bulldog.

“We came up with the idea because we [FCCLA] were talking about wanting to do something for Grace Economus to help the family out; Maddie Wess is our FCCLA president, and we were going back and forth about what we could do. We used to carve pumpkins with the Art Club for Mill Creek, and it just all came together that we should carve pumpkins,” said Mrs. Walsh.

For the parade, they are accepting any size donation and all proceeds are going to the Economus family to help them during their trying times.

With Halloween right around the corner, why not come out to PSHS and start the celebration early with pumpkins and Halloween decorated floats?

Come out this Thursday, October 29, 6:30-8:30 pm to get into the Halloween spirit and help a fellow Bulldog!
