On a blustery Tuesday evening, October 26, over 300 people walked through the doors of Jackson Elementary School and the A2 Charter School to sport their best costume and have a good time.
The front foyer was decorated by younger classroom crafts crows, owls, pumpkins, corncobs, and sunflowers coordinated by parent Angie Allensworth. The third, fourth, and fifth grade teachers and students decorated the gym with artwork from their classes. DJ Dan provided music in the gym.
A Bingo game drew people into the cafeteria, and the cakewalk was a big hit. Students also had the opportunity to have a "green screen" Halloween picture taken by parent, Josh Silva. Jackson¹s outside entrance was again decorated with a fall display created by parent, David DeYoung. New this year were ice cream cones, bucket drops, and the dance!
Students and parents were asked to bring non-perishable food items to the dance. A total of 352 food items were collected at the door. This year's collection topped last year's total of 335 items. The food will be given to Jackson families in need and the rest will be donated to the Salvation Army.
