Colonie Central High School Hosts Halloween High

On a chalkboard in a classroom, there is a paper cut-out of a black cat taped to the board. The cat's eyes are missing, and there are various paper cut-out buttons beside the cat that students have used to attempt to replace the missing eyes.

On Monday, October 30th, Colonie Central High School and iCARE welcomed everyone to put on their costumes and join them for Halloween High. There was candy, crafts and other fun activities like broom racing, pumpkin tosses and pin the eyes on the cat for kids to partake in. 

The unfortunate weather conditions moved the event inside but didn’t dim the spooky spirit and festivities. Throughout the hallways, the various clubs at the highschool put up halloween decorations in classrooms and handed out candy to kids. 

No Place for Hate had kids make their own “graveyard” cups, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) did cookie decorating, and Crochet Club was even selling their members’ creations! Up with the Class of 2025 Executive Club you could buy cake pops and cookies and iCARE had kids making their own spooky slime.

The Board of Education for the South Colonie school district handed out candy and flyers which recognized Halloween High and the 75th anniversary of South Colonie schools. The event supported iCARE’s two community partners, United for ALICE Project and Things of My Very Own. All the proceeds from Halloween High went to those two organizations.

The event was a success and full of fun and candy. A great kickstart to trick or treating and other Halloween fun!
