Belmont Elementary: A PAWSitive Place to Learn!

THANK YOU for your AMAZING DONATION VOTING!! We are making a difference at Belmont and beyond!

Oooooooh!! Fall Fun to End the Month!

PTO (that's you) sponsors three classroom parties for our students: Fall, Winter and Valentines Day. First up is our Fall Party Day, scheduled for Monday, October 31st! We are kicking off a new line up and launching new traditions. Wish us luck!

Here's the plan:

  • Costumes!
  • Party!
  • Parade!

Details, details, details....

  • Costumes are encouraged for students during the party and parade time, but of course, they are not required. Experience has taught us that it's really not as easy as you'd think for students to manage a costume all day, so costumes should be brought to school in a bag or backpack and should be fairly easy for your kiddo to put on by themselves with minimal assistance. Costumes should be elementary appropriate and not too scary. Please do not include blood, guts, gore or weapons of any kind. Accessories (think..projectiles and things to trip over) should stay at home and be saved for Halloween night trick-or-treating. Masks are fine as long as vision is not impaired for walking in the parade!
  • Classroom Party help is encouraged, but will be limited to best accommodate student needs! Thank you to the 2-3 parents from each classroom who contacted teachers to plan and lead a craft, game or both for the 2:45-3;15 party in their child's class. These parents will be welcomed into the classroom at 2:30 to set up as well as assist younger students with their costumes if needed. We will NOT be serving food at parties. This helps us to both enjoy more time playing, and alleviate allergy concerns for every child. They'll get PLENTY of candy and treats during trick or treating with your family- and you'll be able to best monitor their safety!
  • Outdoor Parade at 3:!5! YOUR FAMILY is invited for a front row view of all of our little monsters, movie stars, scientists, musicians, scarecrows, animals, super heroes, creators, book characters, princesses, toys, riddles..............oh, my goodness! I can hardly wait! Here's how we think we can best make this happen- when you arrive for the parade, you may either park in an open parking space and walk up to the front lawn (we'll provide guidance for the best view) or just pull right up in the regular pick up loops, turn off your car and leave it in line, and walk up to the viewing area. After the parade (about 3:32ish) just walk right back to your cars and get ready for the loops to move like normal at regular dismissal time. Please, do not come inside to check your kiddos out early- we'll need those precious minutes to make sure our Bulldogs are all packed up and ready to go with all costume parts intact for the big night. Genius!

It's going to BE Spooktacular!! We hope you can join us!
