This Halloween was the first Halloween I have actually enjoyed at school in years. Since Suit was such a "party animal" I rebelled by rejecting the holiday and everything it stood for. Not today. I even got in costume. Here I am.
Since I am always covered with chalk, I decided to wear black and go as a chalk board. The kids got a kick out of it and even added their own touches.
I had a great time photographing my students in their costumes. Luckily, I just finished as the new principal walked by and he saw me pushing them into class. I wish I did not have to cut the faces off of every picture. They were so cute.
The girl in pink had a great Pebbles Flintstones wig. The nurse looked more like a stripper.
Aloha--I told her to show her outfit to Principal Hula.
She said she was Juno (from the movie) but I renamed her Bristol Palin. She did not like the name.
The highlight of the day was this boy. He came in period 1, yelled "hi Ms. POd", danced around and left. He returned later in the day, posse in hand, with a boom box playing eerie music. While his buddies discounted my overhead and turned on the music, he danced around the room. The whole thing only lasted about 1 minute but I nearly peed laughing so hard. I heard the mask got confiscated later on in the day but he did get lots of use out of it first.
