PASADENA, California– Mayfield’s campus felt very spooky and lively this past week as students and faculty celebrated Halloween by partaking in activities hosted by the Arts Council. To begin the week, students participated in a pumpkin decorating contest at lunch where they could express their creativity and talents by decorating their own pumpkins. Spirits continued to increase as the week progressed, leading up to the big celebration during lunch on Friday, October 28th. On Friday, students and teachers arrived in the morning in their unique costumes, ranging from lovable and well-known icons, hilarious figures and objects, to spine-chilling ensembles. According to Alisa Balian ’24, she thinks Halloween is “fun because we all get to look at each other’s costumes,” which creates a lighthearted atmosphere in the classrooms. During lunch, students and faculty gathered in front of Pike Auditorium to observe the yearly costume contest. Afterwards, teachers passed out candy for students who wanted to trick-or-treat at school. Overall, Halloween at Mayfield was successful in bringing the community together and providing an entertaining sight for all!
