Halloween Costume Collection

Girl Scout Troop 5661 is collecting Halloween costumes for children in need.
Please donate your new or gently used costumes so all of the students at a Weber can be part of the parade and trick-or-treating. The costumes need to be "kid friendly": nothing too scary or gory and no weapons.

There will be a collection box outside of the school's main office Monday, September 15th through Tuesday, October 14th.

Thank you in advance for helping GS Troop 5661 with their service project!
If you have questions, please contact Britt McConnell (( or Jamie Beedle (

Conduct and Cancellation Policy:

The WWL Program is an extracurricular activity. In order for a good, safe educational experience for all, the WWL will operate under the following Code of Conduct:

• Students are expected to behave in such a manner that will not disrupt classroom work or cause disorder in the building or school grounds.

• Behavior will not be allowed which endangers the safety of others, damages, the building or property of others.

• No alcohol, tobacco, weapons, or illegal drugs.

• Instructors have the discretion to remove the child from the classroom at any time should any violations occur. Parents will be notified if children are disruptive or violate conduct policy. If violations persist or are serious in nature, children will be removed from the class. No refunds will be issued.

Any classes cancelled due to teacher illness, early release for inclement weather, etc. will be rescheduled or added on to the end of the year. There will be no classes on scheduled days off (conferences, holidays, snow days, etc.) On rare occasions, classes may need to be cancelled with short notice.
