HALLOWEEN INFORMATION Students in grades K-8 will participate in the Halloween parade at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, October 31st. (Mrs. Straut has already sent information home for PreK students.) Students must bring costumes to school and will be given the opportunity to change before the parade. Reminder: Costumes that are not appropriate, and/or costumes with weapons, will not be allowed in school. All students are encouraged to wear costumes and walk in the parade. (This will be a dress down day). The 7th and 8th grade students will be available to help the younger students with costumes.
After the parade, students will return to class, where they will have their class parties. Class parents are welcome to help with these celebrations, and are requested to contact their children's teachers to discuss individual class plans. Please remember: we are asking that class parents do not bring young siblings to the parties, as it is necessary for them to help the teacher and students.
Parents of children with food allergies are asked to provide an appropriate snack for your child.
If it is a rainy day, we will parade in the gym. (Please pray for a sunny day!)
