It was a dark and stormy morning this Halloween with the Milepost monsters. On Monday, October 31st the ES assembly and costume parade haunted the teachers and parents. The milepost students' werewolf howls and Halloween stomps echoed through the halls during their varied acts. Every grade level put on a unique performance during the parade. There was everything from Nature Poems to spooky Halloween Dances in the hour-long schedule. Over the course of the weeks leading up to Halloween, Milepost students worked hard with their teachers and Ms.Yong to perfect their scares. A favorite performance among teachers was MP2’s adaptation of the Addams Family theme song to describe their teachers.
Scattered along the side of the MPR were book reviews written by the students to showcase their work in class for parents. The spirit of the Halloween assembly is to motivate students with their studies and to have fun — and fun was certainly had with the costume parade! Each grade was called to walk across the stage and around the room, including the likes of pumpkins, Hogwarts students, M&M’s, and more! After this year's Spooky Halloween Assembly, HIS looks forward to discovering what next year's classes will put together.
