To get into the spirit of Halloween, two contests were held for the students and teachers. For one contest, the students got to dress up in their Halloween costumes and wear them to school. The winners of the Halloween costume contest were seniors Abby Heimerman and Ben Neises. Usable scooby.JPG

“We both thought it would be a good idea because Ben looked like a lumberjack, and a tree goes perfect with that,” Heimerman said.

The second place winners were juniors Leah Reep, Caden Runnalls and Molly Schmanke. They dressed up as the Scooby Doo Crew.

“Leah was Velma for her dance during the football game, Caden just looks like Shaggy, and Molly was a redhead so we decided to make her Daphne. We all thought that it would be a cool idea and we got many compliments,” the group said. Schmanke’s little sister Corinne Schmake dressed up as Scooby Doo.IMG_4970.JPG

Principal Brent Harrell sponsored a contest for the teachers also. They got to volunteer to carve pumpkins, and the students voted on the winner. The winner of the carving contest was art teacher Cindy Mullen.

She got her idea from reading the book “It” by Stephen King. She liked the idea of the red balloons scaring people, so she decided to paint her pumpkin as Pennywise and paint a smaller pumpkin red to look like a balloon.

“I carved a pumpkin last year, so I thought, why not change things up and paint one?” Mrs. Mullen said.
