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.
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.
