Rippowam Cisqua School
Halloween is Here!
Rippowam Cisqua celebrated Halloween on Friday, October 26th, and the Lower and Upper Campuses were filled with ghosts, ghouls, strange creatures, magical beings, princesses, superheroes--even the teachers arrived in costume!
On the Lower Campus, the Halloween celebration began with our traditional parade. The JPK, SPK, and Kindergarten students led the way as their parents and teachers snapped photos and followed them into the Skyroom, where the community gathered for a concert of Halloween songs. Later in the morning, students in grades 1-4 paraded through the School and held a Halloween concert of their own, with festive music ranging from classical to rock and hip-hop.
On the Upper Campus, the ninth grade students organized an assembly in the Playhouse, which they had decorated in ghoulish fashion. The students held a Halloween costume contest with prizes for the most original costume, the scariest costume, the funniest costume, the best impersonation, and the cutest costume. Some students dressed up in groups, and others arrived in individual costumes--and faculty and staff joined the festivities as well. Thanks to the ninth grade for organizing a fantastic assembly! We congratulate everyone who took part in the contest, and we wish everyone a happy and safe Halloween!
