Halloween Celebrations at ASH

ASH students, staff and parents celebrated the tradition of Halloween in many different ways this week, with events taking place both at school and in the greater Wassenaar community. On Wednesday, October 31st, the students at the Early Childhood Center dressed up in their favorite costumes and participated in a colorful and fun parade. Excited parents, siblings and staff eagerly watched while Transitional Kindergarten Teacher Ellen Boomer marked the route with students following closely on her heels.

The young, bright faces were ecstatic and showed off their creative costumes, some of recognizable characters like Super Mario, Batman, and Alice in Wonderland, and others of unicorns, witches and fairies. We also detected creative masterpieces, such as a milk carton or a piece of candy in its wrapping, making the ECC parade a joy for all to watch.

Throughout the day, students in the Middle School took joy in showcasing their costumes and were joined by their teachers and Middle School Administrative team, which dressed up as a Domino pieces. Student costume highlights included a popcorn box, several minions, a giraffe, unicorn, strawberry, whoopie cushion, the grim reaper, zombies and a mad scientist. ASH students, staff and parents had fun showing off their Halloween spirit.

Later this week, on Saturday, November 3rd, the PTO Sponsored Halloween Trick or Treat Event will take place in Wassenaar. Start planning your costume and collecting your favorite candy, to get set for the Halloween pumpkin trail. Halloween is a traditional autumn event, which encourages children to dress up in their favorite costume and (with adult supervision), go door-to-door showing off their costumes and gathering treats - 'trick or treating'. All children are invited to participate and we encourage you to open your house to 'trick or treaters' and be part of the 'pumpkin trail'. For any questions please email
