Despite the wet weather, Princeton Day students and faculty did not let anything rain on their parade today! The festivities may have moved indoors but the Halloween spirit raised the roof! The day began with Lower School students lining the halls and cheering on the costumed Middle and Upper School students, faculty and staff as they made their way through the school.
The themed costume contest this year was extremely close, with each grade putting together some creative and spirited ensembles. The freshman took their class to the catwalk with their "Fresh off the Runway" theme that featured some high-fashion looks. The sophomores were completely "Soft-morez" with their plush animal onesies and comfy costumes. The juniors had us dreaming of summer again with their "June-ior" theme. However, the senior class brought home the gold with their "Olympic 2020" costumes. Faculty and staff also got into the Halloween spirit with eclectic department themes, such as battle of the bands, traffic signs, and under the sea.
After lunch, it was the Lower School's turn as they changed into their costumes and paraded through the halls filled with cheering Upper School students and faculty. They concluded their route at the Upper School Gym, performing choreographed Halloween dances in front of a large parent crowd. LS music teacher Julia Beckmann worked with each grade to create fun dances to Halloween favorites such as "Monster Mash" and "Ghostbusters." The show concluded with a performance of "I Put a Spell on You" that included all of the Lower School students and even their parents!
