POTOMAC - From the ghastly to the hysterical with glamorous in-between, Potomac School went all out for the Halloween Parade of Costumes Oct. 31. Headless horsemen, clowns and spooky students set the mood in the Potomac/Greenough Community Center (PGCC) that went on a scale from scary and sweet, to funny and realistic.

The staff at Potomac School dressed up for the annual Parade of Costumes Oct. 31.

Teachers and students, parents, grandparents and preschool siblings turned out for the costumed affair. No matter the ability or age, students won the afternoon with their attire while capturing the attention of everyone in attendance.

Teachers 'Waldo' and 'Emoji' (Abby Stitt and Terri Klein) love the student costumes. "My favorite part of the parade is to see the creativity of the homemade costumes," said Stitt.

The Halloween Parade is a tradition of sorts. First grade teacher Terri Klein doesn't remember a year when there was not a parade of costumes.

During the parade, classes walk onto the stage and announced their disguise. Following applause and opportunities for photos, they sat and enjoyed the next classes' costumes marching and strutting across the stage.

Fifth grade teacher and 'Number Eight' Sarah Schmill said, "My favorite things about the parade are that the kids love to see each others' costumes and really support and encourage each other."
