St. George hosts Halloween dance for RSU 13 students
St. George — St. George seventh-grade students and their families hosted a dance for all seventh-graders in the school district Oct. 26.
Students from St. George, Thomaston, Rockland, Owls Head, South Thomaston and Cushing enjoyed dancing and socializing with one another. All the students were very behaved, a bit shy at first, but dancing up a storm by the end of the night, according to a news release from the school.
The St. George parents and students went all out with their Halloween decorations: the lawn was a haunted graveyard, and ghoulish creatures, lights and displays adorned the hallway and gymnasium. Rockland District Middle School staff member Jeff Lamkins volunteered as the disc jockey and was happy to take requests from students.
The dance was in the gymnasium, with strobe lights and a fog machine to help set an scene. St. George parents had created a buffet table in the cafeteria, complete with punch and homemade desserts, and were themselves dressed up in costumes for the occasion.
Proceeds from the dance will benefit seventh-grade transition activities. RSU 13 students selected St. George girl Lauren Miller and RDMS boy Jack Freeman as the students with the best costumes. Each of them received ticket to Flagship Cinemas, courtesy of the theater.
