Halloween Spirit Takes Over STA

The ghosts, goblins, and ghouls were out in full force on Tuesday as St. Albans celebrated Halloween in the only way we know how. With costumes ranging from a Dr. Schaffer selfie, to a Chapel talk, to “General Sews Chicken” (General Tso’s Chicken), it was an all-out showing that brought both spookiness and silliness to the Cathedral Close.

As is tradition, Mr. Miller led the Lower School in a legendary Halloween Parade, with more than one hundred participants. 

Dr. Schiller led Form II in the Great Pumpkin Roll, with Mr. Haley’s advisory winning the competition. The events included a Pumpkin Run, a Pumpkin Roll Relay, a Pumpkin Brigade, Advisory Strong Man, and of course, Pumpkinmaggedon.

In the Upper School, costumes embraced creativity as many students angled for the path of least resistance to a free dress day. A few seniors taped leaves to their clothes and joined together to form the Olmsted Woods, the beloved forest on campus. A handful of onesies, Rocky Balboa, and Uncle Sam were also spotted on campus.

Halloween 2023!
Located in Washington D.C.,  St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12. While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
