We will have a Trail for Treaters outside where parents will have the opportunity to pass out candy to students if desired. Click below so you can reserve your spot along the parade route to set up for candy distribution and decorate your station. The idea is for this to be like a "Trunk or Treat"... just without the trunks. ;) We will also have a contest for the best-decorated table/wagon/area! So, start planning now! You will need 450 treats.
Students should bring their costumes to school and will change for their classroom parties prior to the parade. It is important that your child can put on their costumes independently as parents will be outside prepping for the parade.
Just a reminder - your child's costume must be non-violent. Weapon accessories/scary masks will not be allowed. Also, due to allergies, students may not come to school with spray-painted hair.

Warnings and Consequences
When kids know that you’re not going to do anything about their misbehavior until you’ve warned them several times, they learn to tune you out. The solution? Let them know from now on, they’ll only get one warning and then they’ll get a consequence. The biggest thing is to be consistent so kids know what is expected and the consequences if they don’t do what is expected. Here is a one-minute video clip from parentingwithfocus.org
Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch must enroll each year. The deadline is Sept. 30th
