One of my fondest memories of grade school is Halloween. Teachers always went above and beyond to make this holiday special for us, from creating spooky-themed assignments all October to dressing up on the actual holiday. It was clear that they loved celebrating with us, and their Halloween spirit made school an unforgettable experience.
