Four days before Halloween, October 27th, 2017, is when St. Paul’s threw their annual 7th and 8th grade Halloween Dance. The event, which lasted from 7:30 to 10pm, had quite a large turnout. A snack table was set off to the side and was littered with bottles of soda, cups, and chips. A few people stuck to the side, but most people were out in the center of the Cafeteria, dancing their hearts out.
A couple of the middle school teachers, Mr. Jarboe, Ms. George, and Mrs. Peterson, showed up as well. Mr. Jarboe was the DJ of the night, playing music and taking the occasional request. Ms. George and Mrs. Peterson were acting as chaperones for the dance and ensured that everyone was having a good time.
Eventually one of the teachers turned the lights back on and stopped the music. They had awards to give out to a few students. The winners of the costume competition for the boys were were two 8th graders, Connor Hegan and Kyle Ferguson, who were dressed up as characters from the movie “The Sandlot”. The winners of the best costume award for the girls were Charli Esposito, Caroline Orum, Siena Pepin-Donat, and Gabby Craft. They were dressed up as space girls. Then came the awards for the best dancers. The boys who won best dancers were two 7th graders, Derek Reinhold and Josh Deegan. The best dancers for the girls were Halle Pitman from 7th grade and Bella Lotze from 8th grade. Congrats to all those who won. I hope to see you all again at the next dance.
