It was happy haunting at Harker’s preschool and lower school on Oct. 31, where children at both locations donned clever costumes and celebrated in separate ways.
At the preschool Harker’s youngest students enjoyed a fun and festive Halloween party in the late afternoon where they participated in themed activities in the classroom, ate special Halloween snacks, and “trick or treated” around the school’s front yard area. Parents were encouraged to attend and participate.
At the lower school, the day once again took the form of the much anticipated Halloween parade. There were plenty of superheroes, ghosts, goblins, witches, fairy princesses and more at the 15th annual event. To the delight of onlookers, each grade level walked around the parade’s pathway a couple times.
Several hundred parents attended the parade, which was sponsored by Harker’s BEST staff. There were bleachers for sitters and plenty of standing room along the route, which was held in the afternoon before dismissal. Students chose to either wear their costumes to school or bring it with them to put on before the parade, but most wore their costumes all day.
