Fall 2016 Update
As Halloween approaches, we would like to inform you of upcoming activities in which your children are welcomed to participate. On Monday, October 31st, we will hold our annual interactive Halloween Harvest Readers’ Theater Assemblies! VES students will be entertained by several teachers , staff members and Ms. Lacy as they use their silliest voices to read Halloween stories. Each class will also contribute to a collaboratively written story and enjoy it during a fun, large group read aloud!
Halloween parties will also take place on October 31st in every classroom. Parties will be planned, facilitated and attended by room parents and their designees only. Designated parent participants are required to check in at sign-in stations at the main entrance or rear entrance upon arrival.
Students are welcome to wear costumes for their class parties. We ask that children carry their costumes to school in a bag. Teachers will arrange for students to change into their costumes just before their class parties begin. Costumes should be quick and easy to change into and be free of props or difficult make-up applications. Your child’s teacher(s) and room parents will provide classroom party details.
Alternative activities will be available for students not participating in Halloween activities. Thank you for your support and cooperation in making Halloween organized, safe, and fun for everyone!
