Pre-first students perform annual Halloween oration

Today pre-first students recited fun and spook-tacular Halloween poems and songs as a part of their annual Halloween oration tradition.
The Halloween oration is a pre-first tradition lasting for over ten years.  The students dress in commonly known Halloween character costumes, including bats, ghosts, pumpkins, cats, and owls, to share Halloween poems and songs with their parents, kindergarten, and first grade classes. This year, the pre-first students performed on the Bowen Cafeteria stage. This introductory experience builds their confidence in their speaking ability on stage as they grow throughout the year. Upcoming recitations where pre-first students hone their skills include the Stone Soup feast and the big "Fish Tales" musical performance in the spring.
