A peculiar, spooky sense of festivity has been lingering in the air all month long. As the 31st of October approached, the anticipation of Alpha students became evident. Walking through the hallways, you could hear students discussing costume ideas, celebration plans, and trick-or-treating routes. Decorations and posters for spooky events were being posted all around the school.
Finally, Halloween arrived and boy did Alpha deliver! Arriving to school Tuesday morning was almost scary, as half of the students weren’t even recognizable. The student population was decked out in fantastic costumes!
At lunch, most students headed to the cafeteria, where both the Music Council Bake Sale and the Drama Council Costume Contest were being held. It was a perfect set up. Students were able to buy treats and proceed to watch the elaborate costume contest while cheering on their peers. The contest was quite successful, with at least 30 competitors, three teachers as judges, popcorn, and music. Every costume was clever, scary or funny in their own way, but in the end, there could only be one winner. Danika Jones, as Bob Ross, won the contest, with Nathan Russo, as Joel Goodsen from Risky Business, coming in with a close second. Congratulations to them both!
This year’s Halloween celebrations at Alpha were a complete success. The costume turnout was great and the events ran smoothly. Here at Alpha Photojournalism, we sure had a great Halloween, and we hope you had a great Halloween too! Please enjoy this lovely photo gallery of some of the best Halloween highlights!
