Our Community Celebrates
Halloween at Warren-Walker School is a day filled with imagination and fun for both children and adults. No more so was this the case than yesterday at all three campuses.
The day kicked off early at the Middle School with faculty members Ann DuBois (dressed as Sister Mary Ann) and Michael Morgan greeting middle school students who were fully decked out for the occasion. This would lead to a day of ghoulish science experiments and creative writing assignments.
Students at each Lower School campus assembled early for the traditional round of recitations and songs by grade level, and the ever-popular appearance by Head Witch, Suzanne Pettigrew, and her cadre of sixth-grade witches who treated all in attendance with a well-rehearsed and realistic presentation of The Witches Scene from Shakespeare’s “Macbeth.” Each was followed by the annual costume parade when students could show off their creative wear and parents could enjoy a number of “photo ops.”
A special thank you is extended to faculty who opened their classrooms for the day and the parents who teamed with them in offering class celebrations that were age appropriate, festive, and fun. One could not help but notice how well the students responded to this day. Albeit a day of fun, it is also a day to integrate so many wonderful concepts into the learning process - whether it be the weighing of pumpkins prior vs. post carving, artfully decorating one’s personally designed ghost, or playing the mystery games designed by students as a response to literature for their monthly book report.
We are ever grateful for the strong community we all share that is Warren-Walker School. In this environment, faculty, parents, and students are able to foster and create relationships and memories that are extremely nourishing for all involved.
