MS Fall Concert got a little scary this past week with the annual pumpkin and 8th grade costume contest. Before the concert the High School Orchestra members served up Dominoes Pizza in a All-You-Can Eat Pizza Fundraiser.
Here are a few pictures of the event, more are loaded on out Flickr page. Link on our home page.
The costumes are hung, the pumpkins are beginning to weep, the belly is full of candy, and its almost time to eat spaghetti. The Spooktacular and Fall Concerts were concerts were two successful nights with great sounding performances, fun costumes, and yummy Domino’s Pizza dinners.
