Goblins, Ghouls and Ghosts, oh my! This years' MNCS Trick-Or-Treat was SPOOKtacular! Elementary students participated in our annual trick-or-treating event, visiting local businesses in downtown Henderson. Whether dressed in cute, funny, or scary costumes, both kids and adults alike enjoyed and exhibited the Halloween spirit parading downtown.
