Scary Halloween at SJD

Halloween was a very scary (and fun!) day at SJD. Student Council organized a costume runway show, a bake sale, games and stories, while Ms. Russell’s Gr. 7/8 class built a horrifying haunted house for students who dared to enter! Entry to the haunted house was optional, and students could have the lights on or off.
