Halloween Reminders

black-cat-behind-jack-o-lantern-thumbStudents are welcome to wear Halloween costumes on Monday, October 31st but we ask that students hold off putting on their costumes until the afternoon as the costumes can be distracting to the different morning activities that the teachers are planning.  There will be a school-wide parade at some point in the gym at our 1:15 assembly.

We have a few requests around costumes for that day.  We ask that all weapons even fake ones, and other violent parts of costumes be left at home. With so many little ones at the school, many get scared by some of the costumes, and as this is supposed to be a fun school-wide event, it would impact the spirit of the day if some of our students become scared.

Please remember that costumes should not make fun of others or portray a negative stereotype. Secondly, if your child’s costume contains a mask, we ask that you either  leave it at home or if they want to show it off during our costume parade then they will be allowed to wear it for that time only. Masks cannot be worn in the classroom as it will make afternoon learning more difficult.
