Halloween Happening Welcomes Over 1250 People to Campus

Holy Cross High School welcomed over 1250 people to the annual Halloween Happening. This beloved Crusader tradition was started in the early 2000s to offer local children and their families a safe place to trick or treat. This year, 250 Crusaders were on hand to collect candy, decorate classrooms and hallways and provide a fun experience for the participants.

"Our kids went above and beyond this year," said Megan Dwyer '05, Director of Student Experience. "The event took place on a Sunday. They came in on their day off from school to set up. They were very generous with their time. Consequently, the event was a wonderful success."

"This year's Halloween Happening was another incredible event that made me feel even more blessed and proud of our Holy Cross family," said Principal Tommy Pompei. "Between the joyful volunteerism and creativity of over half of our student body, the organization of Ms. Dwyer, and the overwhelming turnout from the community, we were all able to enjoy a day together celebrating all that is wonderful about Holy Cross. What a way to kick off the holiday season!"

"We want to thank everyone who was involved with making this event a success," said Ms. Dwyer. "Thank you to the many families who participated and to the current students and families who helped. I want to give an extra special thanks to Thomaston Savings Bank for serving as this year's sponsor."
