PABLO — Following a contentious period caused by COVID-19, holidays and family events were avoided or simply did not occur. Because of COVID, families were advised not to get together for the holidays. This year, people seemed ecstatic to be able to celebrate Halloween freely, with caution, of course.
Two Eagle River School hosted a costume contest, pumpkin carving contest, and cake walk with goodie prizes on Thursday, October 28.
Year after year, TERS hosts a Halloween party for the students, allowing them to participate in the festivities.
Students and staff appeared to enjoy themselves; faculty voted on the best pumpkin carving, and everyone voted on the best costumes.
The MCPS Native American Student Services Department hosted a Trunk or Treat event in Missoula on Friday, October 29. Families and children voted on their favorite decorated trunk, and children received not only candy, but also books, toothbrushes, healthy snacks, and small toys.
