The Peer Helping/Community Service class at Henry Sibley High School works in cooperation with the West St. Paul Police Department and the South Robert Street Business Association to assess and evaluate the need of a Community Halloween Haunted House. The goals of this project are to provide a safe, drug-free environment for preschool, elementary, and junior high age students and their families. The students in the Peer Helping/Community Service class learn skills ranging from teamwork, to identifying community needs, to implementation and building of a Haunted House. The class also provides an opportunity for community service participation for several other high school groups, ranging from athletic teams to academic classes/clubs.
