Jeremy Scaramuzzi是小学五年级的班主任，也是此次小学部万圣节活动的策划者之一。Jeremy表示：“斯巴达家庭每个月都会组织集体活动，10月的主题自然离不开热闹的万圣节。我们设计的活动需要孩子们的互动与合作，不仅让他们玩的开心，更重要的是在一起感受集体的归属感，展现国际部的核心价值观。”Jeremy Scaramuzzi is the 5th grade homeroom teacher and is also one of the planners of this year’s Halloween activities. He said that: “Each month we meet in our Spartan families and we do different activities. For the month of October, we always traditionally done a Halloween party. We are looking for the kids to have a fun time and the activities are planned for the kids that involves collaboration and interaction. The core values of collaboration, discovery, engagement and Tsinghua Spirit are intertwined in our activities. To have fun, to be together as Spartan Family, to celebrate the fact that we are together as a community and to represent the core values of THIS are the purposes of these activities.”除了万圣节狂欢活动，国际部的老师还在各年级开展了丰富的课堂活动。“有的老师设计了涂色活动；有的老师带着孩子们创作万圣节恐怖故事，锻炼他们的思维和写作能力；还有的老师给孩子们介绍了万圣节的历史和习俗。”Besides the Halloween games, teachers also planned in-class activities that were suitable for kids in different grade. “Depending on the grade, I know some teachers designed coloring activity, others did ghost stories. And there were teachers who also told the history of Halloween to give students some background information about this holiday.”在游戏中学习，在快乐中成长。万圣节的精彩时光将成为孩子们珍藏的回忆，游戏中学习的技能也将受益他们未来的生活。夜幕降临，‘小鬼’回家，他们已经在期待下一个万圣节……Learn in games and grow in happiness.
