During the month of October, nothing gets in the way of McAuliffe Middle School’s traditional Halloween costume contest. Each year ASB puts on a costume contest for all the students to show off their creativity. This costume contest is one of McAuliffe’s most popular events and is not only for students to dress up, but the staff too.

The variety and creativity of all of the costumes were spread out. Some costumes included detailed makeup. As soon as school ended, students rushed to the ODAT to get ready to show off their costumes. With the short amount of time provided, ASB got everything done and made it exciting for the students who participated.

All the students who did not want to participate still got to partake in the costume contest by cheering on and watching the event from the sidelines. A number of students from Cohort B also got to watch part of the costume contest in the morning and had their own contest later in the day. Some examples of group costumes worn by the students at McAuliffe are Starbucks workers and M&M’s.

Each member of ASB had a job; the jobs included taking photos, announcing winners, passing out candy and writing down the names of the winners. The newest form of school has motivated ASB to work harder every day to make sure that this school year is the best experience for scholars. When the newest way of doing things came into our lives, no one knew that this is what it would come to.

Every student who partook in the costume contest showed great creativity, but the ones who stood out the most from Cohort A and B were Enjolly Contras and Mason Weber. The scariest costumes were Pheobe Grimshaw and Cade Lucambio. Noah Garrison and Travis Ortega received awards for the funniest outfits. Winning the best pair category from Cohort A were Ryan and Nathan White. Pason Bassett, Hannah Hanes, Lauren Rodenburg, Parker Hoikas, Campell Stevens, Isabella Standly, Aven Johnston, Madison Mims, Grace Gregory and Teagan Nickles were part of the group that won the best pair/group in Cohort B.

Although there have been twists and turns so far throughout this school year, McAuliffe ASB will not stop generating thrilling events for the students and staff to enjoy. The Halloween costume contest was a success and more electrifying events are sure to come.
