School promotes community, family while enjoying Halloween

Knoxville (WVLT) On a day filled with goblins and ghouls, a Knoxville school embraced spooky traditions to bring people closer together.

The Episcopal School of Knoxville hosted a Halloween celebration Thursday, aimed at promoting a sense of community and family.

Along with those special values, the school's headmaster said it was about having a good time.

“We've had our Hallow's Eve chapel, and now it's time for some great fun,” Headmaster Jay Secor said. “Children love Halloween, dressing up, costumes and candy.”

While they encouraged students to dress in their Halloween best, officials decorated campus with all the Halloween necessities.
