Witches, superheroes, cowboys, and princesses march around and show off their costumes.

Yesterday's costumes included a teacher dressed as a frog-in-cauldron, and a student wearing a giant pizza.

Third graders Zach, Nicholas, and Cale all have great costumes.

Zach is a basketball.

Nicholas is a Redcoat from the Revolutionary War.

And Cale is a welder, complete with a giant helmet. He's recently learned how to weld from his dad.

They're all excited about trick-or-treating and say this year's rainy weather won't stop them. 

The best part of Halloween, they say: the candy.
