On October 31 2004 at midnight the high school motion sensored security camera on the north side of the building right outside the weight room door what we believed to be a ghost was caught on tape. Within a matter of seconds the cloudy white image of a cowboy hat appears and white foot / boot prints show up on the sidewalk then disappear..
All within about 5 seconds. I remember watching the tape several times over and over again. Everyone that saw the tape believed that what was seen was in fact a ghost. One of the senior guys actually went the next night dressed in a white sheet to make a joke out of it and pictures were posted all over school.
Though we tried to make it funny there is still a ghost of a cowboy walking the school grounds. As for the Hopscotch Holly ghost. The legend that I have heard and actually helped my 8th grade English class make a video about it was that a young girl has been seen playing hopscotch in the middle school building in the hallway connecting the 7th and 8th grade halls (bathroom hall).|
As for the whole hanging herself in the auditorium that was posted above the legend I know of was that it wasn't Hopscotch Holly that was hanged in the auditorium it was a janitor. When we filmed it we kind of made up a scenario that the janitor was repairing something on the stage and Hopscotch Holly pushed the ladder out from under him and thus he was hanged on an electrical cord.
I believe these are just stories that have been made up to scare the middle school kids that has been passed on for years and changed throughout.
