Washington School celebrates fall with carnival of costumes
Washington Elementary School in Cloquet transformed into a kaleidoscope of color and costumes as students and faculty alike dressed up for the school's annual "Fall Ball" Friday, Oct. 26.
Students conducted a grade-by-grade costume parade around the school. The parade culminated with carnival games, prizes and treats for the students.
"There was a huge turn out and lots of fun," Principal Robbi Mondati said.
The carnival is organized by Washington's second-grade team. Proceeds are used to offset the costs of the second grade's annual trip to the Science Museum of Minnesota in St. Paul.
The April trip aligns with the second-grade unit about dinosaurs. It is usually the day after the second grade performs a dinosaur-themed music program for the rest of the school.
