Fall Activities Bring the Milton Hershey School Community Together
During the last few weeks of October, Milton Hershey School students began celebrating the fall season in classrooms, student homes, and with Hershey entity partners.
Several student homes and Transitional Living buildings enjoyed Harry Potter marathons and themed dinners in honor of the cooler weather.
The MHS Student Government Association produced a mentoring opportunity for Senior Division students to engage with Elementary Division students through Spooktacular Meets. From Wednesday, Oct. 20 through Sunday, Oct. 24, students participated in a fall craft outside, led by high school students. Afterward, they enjoyed spooky stories, themed cookies, and apple cider. As elementary students left the event, they were gifted with a fall goodie bag with a motivational note, candy, and a toy.
Project Fellowship groups from Hershey Entertainment & Resorts, The Hershey Company, and the Hershey Trust Company prepared activities for MHS students such as yard games, pumpkin painting, and trunk-or-treat.
On Friday, Oct. 29, Elementary Division participated in a Halloween parade; Middle Division students were encouraged to wear costumes to school; and Senior Division decorated their hallways and students voted for their favorite theme.
On Saturday, Oct. 30, Middle Division participated in a trunk-or-treat event where student homes decorated their vans and handed out candy donated by The Hershey Company. Transitional Living hosted a Fall Festival during Fall Family Weekend that included crafts, hot cocoa, games, and fall treats.
Milton Hershey School is carefully following federal and state guidelines, CDC considerations, and MHS-established health and safety protocols to keep our campus a safe, nurturing, and healthy place.
