HAPPY HALLOW'S EVE!

Boys and Ghouls at Mt. Loafer had a Happy, Haunting, Halloween!  A full moon must have turned our ordinary students into creepy creatures, scary skeletons, weird witches, vivacious vampires, marvelous minions, and delightful Duck Dynasty Characters!  This Halloween Holiday began with a petrifying parade, where the students showed off their crafty costumes!  At lunch time, two wacky witches served the students a cup of witches' brew!  Then all the classrooms gathered for parties to celebrate this haunting holiday!  HAPPY HALLOWEEN! 

 

HALLOWEEN CARNIVAL! A SPOOKY SUCCESS!

Did you survive the spook ally?  Did you touch a live snake?  Did you get your fortune told by the haunted head?  If you did, you were the lucky ones at the Halloween Carnival!  Our wonderful PTO sponsored this fabulous fundraiser where games, food, prizes, and lots of scary activities were enjoyed by all the boys and ghouls who came!  We can’t thank  our great PTO enough for this wonderful activity, and also thanks to the parents and children who came and supported this fun event!  Thanks so much!
