Dressed as superheroes, fairy tale characters and popular book personas, Bellmore students and faculty at the Charles A. Reinhard Early Childhood Center held their favorite books while crossing the auditorium stage to the cheers of family during the school’s annual Book Character Parade. The students posed for photos before marching around the auditorium to their seats, where they participated in a singalong of Halloween tunes.

In David Reilly’s first-grade class, students made Halloween bookmarks for their home and classroom reading, along with a healthy snack of grapes and marshmallows, emphasizing skills in following directions.

Pre-K students participated in a singalong of their favorite Halloween songs for parents and family. In addition, the school’s youngest students decorated their pumpkins using the mod podge process, pasting colored tissue paper on their orange gourds.

Earlier in the week, the entire school attended the school’s Pumpkin Patch, where each class estimated the weight of their individual pumpkins, guessed the total number of candy corns in a container and took a class picture on the decorated auditorium stage.
