What would make dozens of people wait in the pouring rain? Candy, of course. On October 29, Massapequa High School was transformed into a wonderland for the kids for the annual Safe Halloween.
Families walked through the halls with themes such as a winter wonderland, a slumber party, superheroes and It. “I have attended for the past three years…I love seeing my son’s eyes light up as a result of my students’ hard work and their wonderful decorations,” AP Physics teacher Mr. Joseph Zanco said.
The event allows children to dress in costumes and receive safe candy that was donated by the Massapequa High School community.
Special education teacher Ms. Angela Gallucci organized the third annual safe halloween, which was a huge success. Ms. Gallucci claimed, “This year was fantastic! Despite the rain, we had such a great turnout, so many supporters, and we are grateful for everyone’s contribution.”
The high school students worked in groups, each given a section of the hallway to set up their chosen theme. Students have the opportunity to showcase their artistic abilities while receiving community service hours.
“…[I]t gives kids a chance to go trick or treating and helps parents not have to worry about any dangers that trick or treaters in the neighborhood can bring,” senior Katie Ramsden said.
Despite the unappealing weather conditions, Massapequa High School saw a great turnout.
Hundreds of kids walked through the school with smiles on their faces and candy bags in their hands, feeling the true spirit of Halloween.
