Celebrating Halloween a week late didn't seem to bother the students at Holmes School.
The kindergarteners entertained their families and teachers by singing some favorite Halloween tunes while in costume.
Then they paraded through the halls and were cheered on by the rest of the school.
Finally, the whole student body met their new mascot, the Holmes Hawk, for the first time.
