Spooky Season Around the Schoolyard
Anyone attending Columbus High School is well aware of the festivities that occur around October 31st. Seniors are especially since the Halloween parade is widely considered a tradition by many. Friday, October the 29th was the annual Halloween parade where seniors were allowed to dress up as anything school appropriate and celebrate the season.
Mrs. Willis, said "I love it because I remember it from when I was a kid here, and it's kind of like the last opportunity to act like a kid, it's a good balance, and it's very relaxing when it's the time of the year with so much stress.”
Mrs. Willis, someone who has worked on the Halloween parade for many years says that "I love it because I remember it from when I was a kid here and it's kinda like the last opportunity to act like a kid, it's a good balance, and it's very relaxing when it's the end of the year with so much stress.”
Aria Randall (12), who dressed up as Santa from The Rise of the Guardians, commented that"I’ve been waiting to do this for 4 years and it was so cool especially since my brother is a freshman and I could see him in the crowd."
"It's so cool to see I'm still friends with these people and just seeing them evolve and be able to do this together is surreal. Even though we didn't win or anything, we had a great time and it was everything I wanted it to be," Aria added. Charles Stone (12), who was the photographer in the Met Gala, elaborated that "It's weird to think about because it feels like yesterday I was a young freshman, and I'm going to miss it here, but it makes me feel good about this place."
Mrs. Willis says to all underclassmen “Start planning your outfits now and watch your seniors get inspiration and pick something that's different and original. It will be great, just remember to have fun and celebrate your year.”
