The Academy’s theme for Halloween was “Oldies but Goodies” as the upper school celebrated the October holiday during an afternoon pep rally.

Each division performed cheers and dances, incorporating two original Halloween songs.

Sophomore Jade Spallina said, “My favorite part of the pep rally was when each class did their cheer because it showed school spirit. Everyone was so enthusiastic, and I thought it was one of the best ways to show our Lancer pride.”

Students could wear costumes to school for Costume for a Cause on Oct. 31 by contributing $3 to Aloha United Way.

A costume contest, divided into five categories, was also held, including  the most creative, the best homemade, the best use of theme “Oldies But Goodies,” the best group costume and the best teacher costume.

Junior Kaleoaloha Ladao said, “I thought that it was fun to dress up in our costumes and see what creative ideas other people had. The costume contest was a great part of the pep rally.”

A special guest appearance by the BBOYS dancers of Pineapple Pckrz & Oh noes CPU Crew, including junior Jewel Taitano, performed an exciting break dance.

Spanish teachers, Sean Rist and Keeley Cestare, danced the “Cat Daddy” as winners of the Aloha United Way “Please Fund Me Teacher” campaign. RIst and Cestare raised $200.

Student Council member, senior Sarah Naai, said, “I really enjoyed the enthusiasm and the energy of the students as they cheered. Overall, I think the pep rally went really well because it was a great way to end the day and start the Halloween night.”
