Ms.Delgadillo’s Successful “Literary Character Costume Extravaganza”🎃

This event was hosted on the day of Halloween in the Ethel Pope Auditorium. It was during lunch time, and all students and teachers were able to attend. This event was able to combine the celebration of Halloween while also incorporating the appreciation of literature.

Best Duo😎

Ms. Bennet (Ms. Delgadillo) and Mr. Darcy (Mr. Root) looked absolutely phenomenal in their costumes that The PCPA lend them for this event. Ms. Delgadillo happily shared that, “It was fun and an engaging way to celebrate our favorite literary characters and foster a love for literature among our students.”

During this event there was food, drinks and a raffle. Luceni Juarez an 11th grade student said, “I liked the enthusiasm of the actors, teachers, and presenters. The food was delicious, and the togetherness of all of us sitting and eating was enjoyable. The skeleton in the photo section was hilarious, and the typewriter with the Edgar Allan Poe quote was a nice touch.”

Ms.Turner being the very best Juliet, let’s hope she doesn’t drink that poison😆 (Alondra Cruz)

This wasn’t only a wonderful way for students to connect but also for English teachers to connect with other students and staff. We saw the connection of our community in our school through this event. We appreciate the teachers who were able to participate. Ms. Turner shared a classic Juliet quote saying, “Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet.”

The photobooth was a success! (Alondra Cruz)

Ms. Delgadillo shows her appreciation for the photobooth stating, “The free Polaroid booth was a phenomenal addition, and it was heartening to see the enthusiasm and creativity of our student body.”

All the little details put into this event pulled it together and made it a fun, and beautiful environment.      “First and foremost, a special thanks to Mrs. Vicky Trejo, a former SMHS alumna and counselor, and her team for the splendid decorations. Their efforts added a touch of elegance to the venue, and we couldn’t be more grateful.” added Ms. Delgadillo.

Overall, this event was very successful, and many people enjoyed the time spent. Ms. Delgadillo seemed excited to see all the students dressed up and laughing along with the teachers who attended. Our last word comes from Mr. Valencia who shared his appreciation for this event saying, “Nice job today, Julieta! Thanks for inviting me to be a part of it. School should be fun too! Thanks for reminding us all about that.” With that I think we can all agree that this event was fun and a good way to feel connected with others around campus while celebrating Halloween and Literature all in one.

About the Contributor
Alondra Cruz, Contributer

Hey, my name is Alondra Cruz, and I am a Senior. I'm 17 years old and my birthday is in December.

This is my first year taking journalism. I'm pretty good with writing so I'm hoping to write some good things. I've never been a person to speak up or willingly want to speak to others so I'm hoping that I can get out of my comfort zone for this class. I am part of the 2024 student council this year. I've been part of it since the middle of last school year.

Outside of school I am a very sporadic person with people I'm comfortable with. I'm not a very open person when it comes to meeting new people, but I always try and be a person others feel comfortable talking with. I am the youngest in my family. I only have one sibling and he is older than me. I'm a very introverted person and my biggest company at home are my two guinea pigs. They are both girls one named Remi and the other being Bean. One was given to me, and I bought the other one. Taking care of them has become a daily thing for me.

I recently started painting so it's begun to be a hobby of mine. I personally find peace and calmness in painting with different colors. I'm a big fan of dark colors more than I am to light colors. Another hobby I have is that I like collecting small figures of shows I've watched or am watching. Along with that I collect many plushies and blankets. I love having many blankets big or small because it's something that makes me feel very safe and it just makes my room look very comfortable. Lastly, I recently started going to the gym with my brother and it's been a pretty good thing. I hope I can continue these hobbies while school begins to get more difficult with applying to colleges and stuff.

For my future I do plan on going to college and getting my bachelorettes in criminal justice and minor in psychology. I would double major but I kind of don't trust myself in being able to handle it. Mainly it's just a thought for now.

That's a little bit about me if you were interested :)
