Throughout the South Country Central School District, students have been preparing for Halloween. The Bellport High School Student Council held its Safe Trick or Treat program for students at Frank P. Long Intermediate School and Brookhaven, Kreamer Street and Verne W. Critz elementary schools. Dressed in Halloween costumes, the high school students visited classrooms where they gave tips for a safe Halloween. Some of the tips included abstaining from eating unwrapped candy, never entering a stranger’s home, staying in big groups and having parents check candy before eating it.
At each of the elementary schools, the PTA held pumpkin picking activities in the back of each schoolyard. Classes were escorted to the patch by hayride where they chose their favorite orange gourds.
The week commenced with the community’s stroll down Trick or Treat Street, held at Bellport High School on Oct. 25. Students participated in activities in each of the themed classrooms, ventured down the haunted and scary hallway and grabbed handfuls of candy as they modeled their costumes for peers.
