At Argonne Elementary, the fourth- and fifth-grade students dress up as idioms and participate in a social mixer where they guess each other’s idiom costume. Not only is it a unique way to celebrate the Halloween dress-up tradition, it helps the school’s English language learners with some of the more quirky English phrases.

When: Friday, Oct. 30 / 9:30-10:15 a.m.

Where:  Argonne ES / 680 18th Ave.

SF Public Montessori has its own annual Halloween tradition, “Historical Halloween.” All students choose a historical person to research, then dress up as that person and present about him or her to their classmates.   This year, the third graders are trying something new, a “Wax Museum.”  SF Board of Education Vice President Matt Haney will join the festivities.

When:   Friday, Oct. 30 / 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.
