PARSIPPANY — Northvail’s students and teachers celebrated Halloween Monday afternoon with costumes, parades, parties and a special trip to the Troy Hills Assisted Living/Nursing Center.
Students participated in a costume parade that journeyed around the playground to the delight of a large crowd of parents who came to share in the fun.
The teachers dressed up in their favorite story book characters.
Principal Jeff Mr. Martens and Mrs. DeGeorge, a second grade teacher were the master of ceremonies who entertained everyone and kept the event moving along. The classroom parties followed the parade with parent volunteers helping to make the festivities memorable.
The highlight of the day for the third graders was their trip to the Troy Hills Center. The children wore their costumes and paraded through the residents’ halls and dining areas. They sat and engaged in meaningful conversations with the seniors as they created artwork for them. Some of the seniors were high-fiving the children as they said their goodbyes.
Northvail is a kindergarten through fifth grade school where staff and parents work together to provide a nurturing environment for our students. The school’s diverse population provides us with wonderful opportunities to learn about many different cultures, traditions and life styles.
Northvail Elementary School is located 10 Eileen Court.
