Halloween at St. E’s helps St. Martin’s Barn


St. Elizabeth High School seniors kicked off the school’s Thanksgiving food drive for St. Martin’s Barn in Ridgely, Md., by dressing up for Halloween. The cost for St. E seniors to spend the day in costume was a donated canned good or pasta.

Senior Mary Birmingham took the opportunity to dress as the school’s principal, Shirley Bounds.

Also on Monday, St. E. welcomed Robert Andrzejewski as its principal for the day, for an annual program sponsored by the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce. Andrzejewski is the executive director of the Delaware Mentoring Council and the former superintendent of the Red Clay Consolidated School District. He is a graduate of St. Matthew’s and Salesianum schools. He addressed the students at an assembly, observed classes and met with student leaders for lunch.
