Students at Miller Avenue School had a fun and interactive
assembly program when they were visited by members of the High School’s
theater class. “Safe Halloween” was an informative production that
highlighted some important trick-or-treating tips for the younger
The High School students wrote scenes, improvised and
rehearsed their skits on topics such as not entering someone’s home
while trick-or-treating, using flashlights and other safety measures
after dark, having treats inspected before eating and being mindful of
what tricks are not appropriate. After each skit, they asked the younger
students what was wrong with their scene and the many helpful responses
urged them to revisit their act for a more positive result.
This rewarding opportunity for general education and special
education students to collaborate and develop social, public speaking
and performance skills. Shoreham-Wading River High School teacher Mary
Hygom, who serves as director of the annual performance, shared her
pride in another successful performance.
The School District thanks all the students, Mr. Millheiser, Ms. Gould
and Mrs. Hygom for making this annual event such a success!
