No Trick, All Treat as Students Celebrate Traditions on Halloween

Bronxville seniors – some of whom dressed up as Super Mario, Puss in Boots, the Gingerbread Man, Princess Fiona, Elsa and her prince charming, Pac Mac and the full cast of Toy Story– helped their youngest peers get in the spirit of Halloween on Oct. 30.  

The high school students visited each class in the elementary school, where they read books, passed out candy or led Halloween-themed games and activities for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Third-grader Slate Glick said he liked being treated to a surprise visit by the older students, who entered the classroom in full costume.

“As seniors, we have certain responsibilities to keep the school community very close, interact with everyone and have a good year,” said Jessica Kelly, who dressed up as Princess Fiona and helped second-graders play a game of hangman.

The annual tradition may involve the entire school community, but only seniors get to dress up for Halloween and put on a parade during a schoolwide assembly.

“It’s our last chance to be kids before we go to college and grow up,” said senior Yusrah Seddiki, who emceed the parade with fellow senior Andrew Harwood. “We’re a class full of spirit and good vibes. It’s a tradition we like to continue and look forward to every year.”

Teachers judged students’ costumes during the Halloween parade and gave out prizes in nine categories, which included most original, scariest, funniest, best male, best female, most politically correct/socially relevant, handmade, best handmade group and best group costume.
