 kids at the costume ball
Boo-gie at the Costume Ball!

Zombies, Harry Potter, witches, superheroes, Darth Vader and princesses stormed the campus Oct. 21. The cast of characters putting the fright or smiles into the school’s Costume Ball was amazing! A festive but scarily decorated Multipurpose Room provided the perfect place to let children and parents dance and have fun. The ball included light refreshments and taco caterer Peter Castillo of Fender Benderz. Great music by the DJ, "Q the Music Entertainment," kept everyone on their feet. This was the second Costume Ball hosted by the PTO. But the chills and thrills couldn’t happen without parent volunteers. For some, their work started that Friday morning. Some came out at night (cue the ghoul music)! Many thanks go to: Kim Harris and her son Liam, Sara Odette, Andrea Franco, Yvette Moore and friend John, Diana Salgado, Mura McNeal, Nicole English, Maria, Lety Hilton, Tammy Wamsley, Melissa Dixon, Roxanne Walk and Robert Quezada. If we missed anyone, apologies!

Here is a video of the ball:
