Costumes at School - 10/29/15

Students are welcome to wear their costumes to school on Thursday 10/29 as it is the last day of our school week. Please keep in mind the following building guidelines: We ask that children NOT wear costumes depicting violence or violent acts. This includes fake blood, gore or imagery that would not be "G rated". Masks that can be removed and do not interfere with the day are allowed although please help your child understand that there may be times during the day that they need to be removed.

Please leave all toy guns, knives and swords at home. Reserve elaborate costumes, face paint and make-up for trick or treating as these things can create a learning distraction.

Halloween is an exciting time. Let's all help to make sure it is a safe and positive experience for the children while at school. Thank you for your support with these guidelines.

Y5-2nd Grade Monster Mash-a-thon

Thursday, October 29 2:30-2:50

Our young five through second grade students will be participating in a healthy walk/dance-a-thon around our track in their Halloween costumes. Our 3rd-5th grade students will also be surrounding the track to cheer them on and to "mash along" on the sidelines.

You are invited and welcome to join us at 2:30 on Thursday. This event replaces our parade and is a great opportunity to check out costumes and to enjoy a few moments of fall fun at Davisburg. Please join us outside behind the gym if you dare!
