Students sometimes feel like they just want to escape school. Now the National Honor Society is helping them get their chance.


The NHS is sponsoring Baldwin’s first Escape Room fundraiser on May 18. Admission has not been set, but likely will be about $5 per person.


The event, which will be a fundraiser for the  American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, is being organized by senior Charli Hooper.


“The concept for most of the rooms is you have to find an answer key for a test before a teacher comes back from their lunch break,” Hooper said.


There will be about 11 escape rooms with a maximum number of eight participants in each room. The rooms are being designed by NHS members who have come up with a variety of themes, from vines to chemistry, aimed to attract Baldwin students.


“We want it to be inclusive so freshmen can do it too,” Hooper said.


Hooper said she’s always had a thing for puzzles, and in the last few years she has become interested in escape rooms.


NHS sponsor Mrs. Temme said she likes to support ideas and causes that students are passionate about.


“I thought it was something we’ve never done before. I thought it was very creative,” Temme said.
