Our students across the district had a blast this Halloween! From hayrides for our elementary students to candy and cider at the high school, our students had a spooktacular time. The day culminated in the annual Halloween Parade, as our elementary students marched to each building in their Halloween costumes. Check out some of our favorite highlights from the day!
