Elementary Students Receive Special Visitors on Halloween

Bronxville High School seniors – some of whom dressed up as their favorite characters from Sesame Street, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the Care Bears and The Incredibles, as well as swimmers, farmers and political figures – helped students in the elementary school get into the spirit of Halloween on Oct. 31.

The students, who dress in Halloween costumes as part of a special school tradition reserved only for seniors, visited each classroom at Bronxville Elementary School, where they gave treats, read books and led Halloween-themed games and activities for students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

“It’s something that the seniors really look forward to,” said Ellie Briskin, a senior who dressed up as the villain Syndrome from the movie “The Incredibles” and helped read a book in a first-grade class. “I think it’s really great that we get to go to the elementary school classrooms. It’s important for kids to establish relationships with the older students who can be their role models.”

Following their collaboration with the elementary school students, the seniors gathered in the school’s gymnasium where they put on a parade during the annual schoolwide Halloween assembly. Teachers and fellow classmates judged the seniors’ costumes during the parade and gave out prizes in four categories, which included most creative, funniest, best solo and best group costume.
