Happy Halloween!

What a grand day! And what fun we’ve had preparing for this party!  First we’ll take you on a tour.  See for yourself what our hallway and room looked like this week.

Next imagine all of these fun students having a well organized party.  One third of them planned the menu, brought the food, and cleaned up their area.  One third of them planned the games, brought all necessary props, ran the games, and cleaned up at the end.  The last third of the students decorated the room.  They brought their favorite decorations from home and placed them thoughtfully around the room.  I had some of the panels of bricks for our door exterior from last year, but needed some new ones as well.  So student volunteers used paint and sponge to create new spooky brick walls.  Everyone wrote their own silly epitaph and painted their own tombstone using a sponge for that stone look.

  1. Well, I’m sure you realize that I can’t let this grand party go by without some sort of orthographic comment!

    I had been thinking about sharing what there is to learn from the orthographic structure of ‘Halloween’, but that was before I saw the notice above the door of the Old Haunted House.

    That initial ‘Y’ needs some attention – it’s quite a thorny subject. So how about organizing Zoom session?
