BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – A bevy of popular children’s characters took to the hallways of Bronxville Elementary School on Monday to help young students get into the Halloween spirit.

The characters – from “Sesame Street,” “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” the “Care Bears,” “The Incredibles” and others – were played by Bronxville High School seniors, who donned the costumes and visited the school as part of a longstanding district tradition, according to school officials.

The seniors visited kindergarten – fifth-grade classrooms to pass out treats, read books and lead Halloween-themed games and activities, officials said.

Ellie Briskin, a senior who read to a first-grade class while dressed as the villain Syndrome from the movie “The Incredibles,” said she and her peers had looked forward to visiting with the elementary students.

“I think it’s really great that we get to go to the elementary school classrooms,” she said in a school district statement. “It’s important for kids to establish relationships with the older students who can be their role models.”

After their classroom visits, the seniors gathered in the elementary school’s gymnasium to hold a parade during a school-wide Halloween assembly, according to officials.

Students and Bronxville Elementary teachers then judged the seniors’ costumes, awarding prizes for the most creative, funniest, best solo and best group efforts, according to officials.
