Halloween Dress-Up Day goes to the dogs

Melissa Bill, physical education instructor at Lyman Gilmore School, figured out an innovative way to have her students and colleagues participate in Halloween Dress-Up Day on Friday.

She dressed up as Cruella De Vil, the famous villain from story, “The 101 Dalmatians.” She got her students and some colleagues to dress up like the black-and-white spotted dogs, too.

“The ears and the tails were pre-ordered online,” Bill said. “This is something I did to get the kids to participate in school activities.”

British novelist Dodie Smith wrote “The 101 Dalmatians” in 1956. It was later immortalized in an animated movie by Walt Disney in 1961 and a feature film in 1996.
