You're never too old to enjoy a good scary story, as Ms. Robyn Mantooth's senior English classes proved to ACHS students and teachers Friday, October 30, 2009.

They decided to make their study of short stories a little more fun...and scary!

While a different short story was read each day of the week, Friday was the Spook Read to other ACHS classes.

The week long event focused on scary short stories including classic selections by Edgar Allen Poe and William Faulkner as well as selections of scary urban legends and stories that were eventually made into movies.

But on Friday, Ms. Mantooth's first block class took that extra step and dressed as characters in the stories to try to scare their fellow students and teachers.

They succeeded.
