Overview

Halloween is the one day of the entire school year that teachers dread most, and this year, the students have started celebrating a day early. Cupcake icing is smeared all over a third-grade classroom, and everyone is preparing for the annual Halloween Day parade. With princesses running a tiara trade ring in the girls' bathroom and a laser sword battle among fourth-grade space rangers, the teachers are quickly losing control of the school to Halloween spirit.
When a group of fifth-grade monsters tie up two first-graders and prepare to eat them, the teachers are ready to call it quits, but the principal insists on perfect teacher attendance on October 31. It looks like this year's Halloween will be more trick than treat.
It's up to the students and their parents to show the teachers a new kind of Halloween and give them a holiday treat they'll never forget.
