  • Halloween


    Halloween is Coming! 

    Our costume parade will be on Thursday, October 31, 2019 @ 3:20pm


    Halloween Costume Guidelines

    1.  All Costumes should be in a bag or backpack, labeled with your child’s name and can be worn over their clothes only.

    2.  Please do not send any costume that can't be worn over your child’s school clothes or make-up that needs to be put on your child. This also includes any shoes that might be more challenging to walk in during the parade.

    3.  Costumes may not have a weapon, be overly gruesome, offensive, bloody or inappropriate for a school-friendly environment.  If you are not sure about the appropriateness of your child’s costume please ask your classroom teacher. 

    4.  If you do not want your child to participate, please let your classroom teacher know.  We will make sure alternate options are available for those students.
