Zombies stalk the halls, behind every door is a monster more grotesque than the last. Even the teachers look creepy.  Is this the end of  the world, or is it just costume day at The Georgetown School?

Friday, October 29th marked the first  Halloween celebration TGS had in two years. With costume contests and trunk-or-treating, new  students were finally able to enjoy an old tradition. Kicking off the event were the middle and high  school costume contests. Larson (inflatable cell phone) won first prize for MS and Morgan (Teletubbie with functioning screen) won for the HS. Other notable costumes included Bristol as Dr. Simmons, Baryck as a T. rex, Isadora as Daphne, Sam as a duck, and many more.  “I really liked my chicken costume,” said Corrin. “Except for the fact  my chicken fluff got everywhere, it was great.”

After students showed off their keen sense of horror- and quirky-themed fashion, the school headed outside for trunk-or-treating. Participating teachers and students had decorated their vehicles and were distributing candy out of their trunks. Everyone was pleasantly surprised by the quantity and quality of the candy.  Jackson D. exclaimed, “I have a Bitcoin!” when he got a chocolate pirate doubloon from some of the high-schoolers.

Kingfishers always enjoy Halloween and we are glad it’s back!  Great job, Student Council!
