As you are aware, Halloween is a time for fun and excitement for many children. Volunteer room parents are planning and organizing simple activities, games and treats for Halloween parties on Wednesday, October 31st. If you and your child wish, he/she may bring a costume/mask to school that day in a sack. Any costume brought to school should be easily slipped on and off. No costume weapons, (toy guns, knives, swords, etc.) may be brought to school. Please note that students will not be allowed to wear or apply any makeup or hair coloring during school. Halloween can serve as a springboard for discussions related to safety, manners and good citizenship. Let’s do all we can to make this Halloween a safe time for children.
HALLOWEEN COSTUME PARADE & PARTIES
Central Elementary students are planning to participate in a school-wide Halloween Costume Parade on Wednesday, October 31st beginning at 2:00 p.m. Students will don their costumes and parade through classrooms providing for some “spooktacular” fun for all. Classroom parties with activities and treats will begin immediately following the costume parade.
