Halloween Information

Halloween is quickly approaching! On Halloween we ask that you send your child to school in regular clothes as they will be going out to recess and may have gym.  Also, please remember to leave all weapons at home, even if they are part of the costume.  Please try to make the costumes school appropriate, including no weapons, blood, etc., as we have students ages 5-9 in our building.  Thank you for your help with this.  The students will be given time to change into their costumes before the parade. The parade for K-3 will begin at 1:30.  We will be parading around the block weather permitting.  If the weather does not cooperate, we will parade through the gym for you to watch.
