Elementary Halloween Party – Who Am I? @ TNSM Growing Room
Oct 30 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Each year at TNSM, elementary students celebrate Halloween in a special way. The photos below, show some of the famous characters we’ve identified from previous years through their clever costumes and spoken clues about their lives. The 6th graders share their love of anatomy in a “D’em Bones” song that lists bones from (head) parietal bone… to (toe) the distal phalanges.

We are looking forward to this year’s celebration. Our typical schedule is listed below:
  • At 12:15 the elementary children celebrate Halloween by having a party outdoors at recess. A number of volunteer parents sign up to bring healthy snacks and to help with crafts and games.
  • At 1:45 the 6th graders sing their rendition of “D’em Bones” on the porch steps, covering many of the 206 bones in the human body in song. Parents are invited to attend.
  • At 2:00 the elementary students dress up as famous historical or literary characters and parents and students guess who they might be from clues the child discloses.  Parents are also invited to attend the “Who Am I?” portion of the festivities too.
