Northside Teachers Get Competitive

The Annual Halloween Department Costume Contest
Social+Science+Department
Social Science Department

Every Halloween, the Northside teachers compete in a department costume contest, judged by the Administration. This year, all the departments channeled their creative spirit and rocked terrific themed costumes. In selecting the winners, Principal Patti Stuber said the following:

“I have to say that this year we feel like everyone has won the costume contest. However, we know that that will most likely not be a popular opinion.

“Therefore, this year’s winners for bragging rights are the collaborative, and school spirit week-supported, costumes of the Social Science and Science departments.

“I need to also say that an honorable mention must be given to the Diverse Learner department. Not only did you all commit to the dinosaur inflatables, but you have saved me from a costume that Mr. Smith suggested for next year. Thank you.”

Admin has spoken.
