Holy Cross High School students and faculty welcomed young children and their families for the local neighborhoods for the 20th Annual Halloween Happening. This annual event offers a fun, safe place to go trick or treating. Students decorated rooms, donated and distributed candy and provided guests with a memorable experience.
"I am so proud of our students and what they accomplished," said Megan Dwyer '05, Director of Student Life. "It takes a village to put this event together. Last year, due to COVID-19, we held this event outdoors. This year, under safe precautions, we brought it back into our classrooms and hallways where it belongs. Everyone did their part to make this a fun, safe experience for all involved."
Halloween Happening started in 2002 as a modest event with lots of heart and spirit. Over the years, it has developed into a beloved Holy Cross tradition.
"This event is a Holy Cross favorite," said Dr. Thomas C. Pellegrino, President. "Our students love turning their school into a spooky and silly place for kids, young and old to enjoy some Halloween fun. This is a great event for the entire Waterbury community."
