Halloween Party 2013 (11)

QUESTION: What is cuter than a bunch of Martin C Barell students dressed up as their favorite characters??
ANSWER: NOTHING!!!

Our annual Halloween Party was on October 31, and students, clients, and staff showed up dressed as favorite characters, leopards, and hamburgers, oh my! The older students manned activity tables helping the younger kids play matching games, make holiday shakers, and stick their hands into gross stuff participate in the sensory station. Everyone had a good time – who doesn’t love a party?!?
