In the spirit of Halloween, special exceptions were made to the dress code. Students dressed up with hats, cat ears, horns, and even onesies.

Historians suggest that Halloween originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts.  Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating and carving jack-o-lanterns.

It’s not often that students get to wear hats and costumes to school, so the spooky holiday is an opportune time for students to express themselves and showcase their looks.

“I like seeing people around the hallways dressed up and being able to express what they like,” said senior Mazie Locklear. “It’s a good feeling.”
