 Flyskeleton-walk-6  halloween is an exciting day for kids because it means “trick or treating” and lots of free candy. What makes it even more exciting for kids (and a lot of adults) is that it also means dressing up in costume for the occasion!

letterstudents were free to wear almost anything they wanted as long as it didn’t portray anything scary, evil, or inappropriate. Anyone who either had a scary costume or who preferred not to wear a costume at all were asked to at least dress in orange and black. Almost no one did! witch broomstick

orangepumpkin4 spiderwalklettersome of the costumes were purchased from stores, but a lot were apparently home-made. IHMS has some very creative parents because the home-made costumes were funnier and more creative than the store bought costumes, and it was obvious that a lot of effort went into their design and manufacture.

lettersince everyone was eager to show off their outfits, it’s been a yearly tradition at IHMS for students to parade their Halloween costumes in front of everyone else in the school. This is done in the form of a procession through each of the classes from Kindergarten all the way up to grade 8. In this way, everyone in the school can show off what they have, and at the same time they can see what everyone else is wearing. Animated_Cute_Funny_Ghost-10sm

lettershe procession began with the Kindergarten students parading through the grade 1 classroom. As both grades checked each other out, the grade 1’s followed the Kindergarten students into the grade 2 classroom. The grade 2’s then followed the line into the grade 3 classroom, and so on. This continued all the way to the grade 8 classroom, and finally back down into the gym for the Halloween extravaganza. must2 zombie-animated-walking goto2zombie-animated-walking gymzombie-animated-walking

This has been a tradition for the past 21 years, and this year the teachers all dressed up as dominoes. The theme was kept a secret until the teachers wore their costumes to school that day.

lettersn order to encourage healthier eating habits, Halloween has been declared a “candy free” day at IHMS. Families who wanted to share a fun treat on Halloween were asked to only bring an inexpensive toy … NO CANDY! nocandyihms

 

 

 

 

 

 

lettershe October newsletter stated “Immaculate Heart of Mary School has been focusing on teaching students to make healthy choices when it comes to diet. Children collecting a bucket full of candy on Halloween is a perfect example of how foods high in sugar and fat contribute to obesity and a poor diet. Adults can promote healthy eating habits to children by limiting foods high in sugar and fat. Candynohenry

lettershe students had a lot of fun coming to school dressed up for Halloween. It gave them the opportunity to wear their costume twice – once during the day and again that evening. There are a few other N.U.T. days spread throughout the school year, but most students agree that Halloween is the N.U.T. day they enjoy the most. Thanks to Mrs. Hutsulak and the student council for organizing the gym extravaganza. animated-batanimated-halloween_witch_broom
