On Friday, October 30th, Boys’ Latin held its annual Halloween assembly. This assembly is a time for the Boys’ Latin community to come together to celebrate a fun holiday.
This assembly is exciting, and people look forward to this every year. Student Andrew Murrow said, “I look forward to this assembly every year. The costumes are fun and the activities are amazing.”
The assembly began by having all members of Boys’ Latin who dressed up line up in front of the stands at the gym. The costumes ranged from funny to horrifying! Various awards were handed out to students such as most creative, scariest, and most funny.
After the students and teachers displayed their costumes, the events began. The events included: face painting, volleyball, pumpkin carving, guessing how much candy is in a container, and even a few relay races.
The face painting was a very interesting competition to watch. The designs ranged from funny to scary.
While the face painting was going on, people were also brought down to carve a pumpkin. The designs made were spooky and showed excellent creativity.
During the time of pumpkin carving and face painting, a few relay races took place. The teams for these races were maroon vs. white. These races were full of fun and competition, and it was enjoyed not only by those participating but also by those watching.
The races included dizzy bat, hopping in a sack, and a mummy race.
After the races, it was on to the most anticipated part of the assembly: who guessed the correct number of candy in the container. The winner of this competition was awarded all of the candy within the container. This year’s winner was sophomore Alec Cohen.
This year’s assembly was extremely fun and enjoyed by many. The costumes were very creative, and the events were very successful.
