Highlands School holds annual ‘Spooky Parade’

Students in grades K-5 at Highlands School got their Halloween on at the annual “Spooky Parade” and marched through the halls showing off their costumes on Nov. 2.

Highlands School students donned costumes and walked through the halls for the annual Spooky Parade on Nov. 2.

“The students look forward to this special event and are excited about walking the halls each year,” said Assistant Principal Sarah Holbrooks. “This year we had to rethink our route due to social distancing guidelines.  Grades 6-12 also look forward to the “Spooky Parade” where they can see the little ones.  Many older students have younger siblings or cousins that participate in the ‘Spooky Parade.’”

Older students cheered on costume-clad elementary students as they walked through the hallways. Holbrooks said she felt it was especially important they continue this tradition this year because students have had many other disappointments since last March due to COVID-19.

“We are happy that we were able to tweak the parade so that our students could have a fun time while continuing to follow safety protocols,” said Holbrooks. “We love to have fun, but we also want to be sure that we are putting the health and safety of our students first.”

In addition to the “Spooky Parade,” Holbrooks said K-5 classrooms also incorporated fun-Halloween activities into classroom learning to make the holiday even more festive.

Students and teachers paraded their costumes through the hallways of the school to the cheers of older students. Pictured above the parade makes its way to the Middle School.
