Boo! The publication’s group went around the middle school to get people’s perspective on this year’s Halloween assembly vs. last year’s Halloween assembly. This year there was pie eating, scary laughs, a scavenger hunt, and of course the child’s version of dead eye. We went to many people so that we can get their opinion. The group picked a teacher and two students who they thought would be the best fit for this story.
The pie eating contest was definitely the highlight of this year’s middle school Halloween assembly. People from different advisories competed to see who could eat the most pie in a short amount of time. We had a funny situation. Most notably, everyone scurrying back to their seats after Myles Davis’ infamous vomiting. We had a competitive situation. The Maroon Team beat the White Team in the pie eating contest. All in all, it sounds like everybody had the most fun during the pie eating contest.
Our publications group found one particular question having the same answer. For example, one of our three questions was: “What did you miss in this year’s Halloween assembly?” All of the answers pointed to the costume competition. Many missed the competition for students and teachers alike, and hope that it will return next year.
When posed with the question about what she would like to see at next year’s assembly, Ms. Vernon had a memorable request:
“It is such a huge production, and it takes so much hard work and effort, that I am unsure how to make it even better; I can’t forget that mummy wrapping competition from a couple of years ago! Honestly, though, the best thing we could do is put Mr. Mollett on horseback, make Mr. Maisel Ichabod Crane, and see what happens when they recreate “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” I could also see Mr. Shriver as Leatherface in “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” Would Ms. Brown make for a scary zombie? Or Mr. Sheehey as a vampire named Dr. Acula? I guess it’s time for us to start writing some scripts.”
This year’s assembly was a great success, with activities new and old. Who knows what next year will bring.
