To the editor:
I went with my family to the ‘Triton is Haunted’ event and I wanted to take a minute to applaud all of the folks who worked so hard to make it a success. I can report that fun was had by one and all! The folks who organized this Triton Stadium fundraising event and, most important, the students who staged it, did such a great job of making sure that my 3-year-old was enchanted, my 10-year-old was thrilled, and their dad was quite frankly a little chilled.
It was great to see Glinda the Good Witch, a golden cat-like creature and some crazy Triton Viking wielding Thor’s hammer. Someone should sign that guy up to be the permanent mascot. Below is a list of the groups who warrant special mention. But mostly the thanks go out to the collected efforts of all — Team Triton.
This event proved that the effort to build the new stadium is about much more than just building a new stadium. It’s about more than just sports too! Team Triton worked with folks and organizations from across the district: sports, music, honor students, parents and student organizations. All came together to welcome the hundreds of families to the grounds of Triton. Triton itself was transformed into a carnival of fun with bouncy houses, pie-in-the-face throwing, football and soccer games, and even a mechanical bull, and that was just the outside on the field!
Mostly this event showcased what a fine group of students we have at Triton. These students designed and staged one the finest haunted houses I’ve seen in a while. So much so that I ran out of one of the rooms screaming like a host of ghouls were after me. There I said it, and when I inadvertently entered that room again, I started laughing nervously and ran out as fast as I could! Yikes!
