Houghton Elementary's 2nd Annual Escape the School will be attended by about 400 children, parents, and community members.  The event proceeds will help pay for enrichment programs for children.

Students and their families compete against other teams in order to escape the classroom before the clock ticks down to zero. Storyline - You are new students at wizarding school and have to prove yourself worthy by solving puzzles.  Students will use clues within the classroom so that they may escape. Once they have escaped the classroom they will then need to solve another series of puzzles to escape the school.
