Halloween Costume Parade
We will be allowing costumes to be worn all day long if you want to help your child into their costume at home. Another option would be a costume that can be easily put on over the clothes they wear to school. We will be severly limiting the number of students who can use the bathroom to put their costume on because we cannot have numerous students from different classrooms in the bathrooms together so please keep that in mind when making costume decisions. Plus we need to keep the bathrooms available for students who actually need to use the bathroom.
Weather permitting, we will be having our costume parade outside through the downtown area. Students will be exiting the school around 2:30pm. We'd love for you to join us on the route to enjoy our parade.
