Parliament Place children enjoy costume competition

On Halloween, children in grades 3-5 at Parliament Place Elementary School wore their most creative costumes for a special morning contest.

Students went all out for the competition, and six children from each grade level were nominated to face each other for one of six different awards: scariest costume, best homemade costume, funniest costume, prettiest costume, most creative costume and best costume.

Adam Kayku dressed as a robot and won best homemade costume; Arianna George wore vivid colors and had a painted face, and she won most creative costume; Mia Marquez stepped out of Frozen to snatch the award for prettiest costume; Brianna Edwards was a frightful prom queen and took the crown for scariest costume; Daniel Schlyer giddied up as a horse and won funniest costume, and John Jordan, who dressed as a crippled old man, played the part perfectly and won best costume.

Parliament Place Principal Drew Olson then handed out prizes not only to the winners of the contest, but all students who were nominated.

“You all did such an amazing job, and each and every one of you is a winner,” he told them.

Halloween at Parliament Place was capped off with a parade around the school that was festive and well attended by parents and all schoolchildren.
