A pumpkin carving contest, dance, costume contest, and trick or treating were some of the activities that the Conserve School community participated in a couple of weeks ago. Students had the opportunity to carve pumpkins during after school activities and had a chance to enter them into the contest. On the night of the Halloween dance the pumpkins lit the way to the Lowenwood Recreation Center, and three winners were chosen for the best carved pumpkin. 1st Place went to Ellie B; Runner Up went to Katelyn L., and the Students’ Choice Award went to Ryan E.
The Student Environmental Alliance of Lowenwood (S.E.A.L) helped plan and organize a Halloween dance at Conserve. They did a great job decorating, putting together music, and planning a fun night of dancing. The costume contest occurred during the dance and students were chosen for best environmental themed, scariest, and funniest costumes. Anna V., Ellie B., Kelsie S. and Theo J. all took 1st place in one of these categories. Katie M-T, Theresa K, Joe B, and Nate W. all took Runner Up.
Halloween celebrations would not be complete without some trick or treating! All the students had time to dress up before study hours on Monday ad go to the different houses on campus to enjoy homemade goodies, ice cream, candy, apples, and other treats. (Tip of the Day: If you are ever wondering how to get rid of random things from your garage or storage space, think about giving them away as alternatives to candy on Halloween—it is sustainable and inexpensive… and who doesn’t like getting free stuff?—At least our high school students liked these free “gifts”)
Everyone seemed to have a great time celebrating this fun Fall holiday. Thank you to S.E.A.L. for all of your hard work, the graduate fellows and staff that helped with judging the pumpkin and costume contests, and for those who took the photos for the blog.
