No Tricks … but lots of treats!

Halloween costumes at Moraine Park West Bend campus

Once in a while, I have an opportunity to exchange my business suit for something more casual.  This time it happened to be a pumpkin costume!

Each year, the West Bend Early Childhood students and staff coordinate a family-friendly Halloween party for the children of students and staff.  Every year has been a great success; this year was no exception. 


From costumes, games, prizes, treats, refreshments, face-painting, balloon creations, and a ‘scary’ maze, the party had it all (click here to see more photos!).  Over 75 children and as many adults enjoyed a fun-filled night on Oct. 26 of games and entertainment where program students showcased their education and training.

Special thanks to the faculty, program students, staff and student government members for all of their time and effort in making this night a huge success.  This is just one of many events Moraine Park offers on a regular basis to engage students, staff and members of the community.  Due to its success, it will remain a staple for many years to come!
