Students came together this weekend for an exciting Halloween workshop! Following with the tradition of years past, we started off with a spooky piano performance by the students dressed up in their costumes. Afterwards, we split into teams for a challenging scavenger hunt and a create a scarecrow contest. As part of their scavenger hunt challenge, students had to create their own video skits and musical compositions. Their creativity was awe inspiring! Make sure to check out the videos to see their amazing work! We finished our workshop by enjoying pizza and tasty desserts as students tapped into their crafty sides and created origami pianos. Fun times, as always!! :-)
The competition was intense, with different strategies approached by each team. The baseball player, football player, cowgirl and Stitch got right to work on finding their items for the scavenger hunt while the other team decided to focus more of their time towards their video skit and composition. Both teams worked collaboratively together and most importantly everyone had a blast! After tallying up all the scores, Emily Dickinson, the werewolf and the baby won by just 5 points, receiving a total 87 out of 100 points. I also surveyed some impartial judges for the scarecrows, and the Wounded Pirate received the most votes. Both teams did an amazing job - I was totally impressed by the hard work and creativity that all the students possessed. Happy Halloween to all!
