1st Year Trial -Character Connections Dress Up at Halloween


For Halloween this year, Village and ECDC are welcoming our students to wear seasonal tee shirts, outfits or simple costumes, making a connection to their favorite book character.


Important***

No masks, makeup, hair dye, props, or scary/gore


If your child has the book at home that mirrors their favorite character costume, please have them bring the book in with them to share. It is not mandatory for students to come dressed in character, but are welcomed to do so, if they so choose. Dressing up is optional. We also do not expect that parents to go out and purchase an additional costume. If you celebrate Halloween and are going to dress up, search online and make the connection to a book character. We are sure you will be able to find any pre-determined costume meet the character connection requirement.
