The end of October of every year is what Minhang Crosspoint students look forward the most, because this is the day we had our Halloween Party. The teachers of the school activity department and members of the student government also planned Halloween party for everyone, including Tug-of-war in costume andScavenger Hunt. At night, the haunted house designed and run by students also opened. There are also dancing, Hip-hop, band performances and all kinds of fun activities during the day.
Before Halloween, the atmosphere at school began to intensify. After receiving the Halloween House decoration notice from the activity department, all students and the head teachers were getting busy. Some houses are decorated with jack-o-lanterns, spider webs, and colorful balloons. Some houses are filled with ghost dolls on the ceiling and white cloth with plasma on the Windows, which is full of the scary atmosphere of Halloween. Each house has its own unique features. The decoration of the library and public areas is also indispensable. Thanks to our volunteers, they spent 3 nights and days busy with the decoration of library and lobby with the help from our teachers.
On Halloween morning, students and teachers put on Halloween costume. Students dressed up as ghosts, their favorite cartoon characters and creative Halloween costumes. Miss Dess from AP Psychology dressed up as a maleficent witch, Miss Milan from biology dressed up as a mermaid, and ESL's Kim even brought her dog Heyhey to school.
As night fell, the Halloween party finally reached its climax. From time to time there came screams from the haunted house. In the library on the first floor, band members were making final preparations. By 8:30 p.m., when the last group of players left the haunted house, the band had already started their show. Beautiful song from the library spread out. Students were swing with the rhythm of music. Students were laughing and clapping after each song. Look at the stage, the cooperation between the musicians and the lead singer is perfect. Our band was trying their best to present a wonderful performance to our students under the stage.
After the band's performance, Mrs. Vincze, our executive principal, and Mr. James, our vice principal, announced the awards for the Halloween festival. Including: the winner of tug-of-war in costume, the winner of best costumes female, best costumes male, winner of classroom decoration, the winner of scavenger hunt, etc. Besides that, school also give special awarding to the students who were busy decorating our school before the Halloween. Both Mrs. Vincze and Mr. James highly appreciated our students for their hard working and commitment for the Halloween activities. Finally, this Halloween party ended with cheerful laugh.
How time flies! After the Halloween party, students from all classes united as one to clean the library and their classrooms to ensure that they would have a clean and tidy environment for the next day's study.
Through the Halloween party, our students learn how to arrange an activity as well as having fun with it.
