Hoping all our students have a fun, safe, Halloween weekend:


Everyone loves a good scare on Halloween, but not when it comes to the safety of those little trick-or-treaters. Fortunately, there are lots of easy things parents and kids can do to stay safe on the spookiest of holidays.

Hard Facts about Halloween Safety

On average, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year.

Top Tips for Halloween Safety

  1. Carry glow sticks or flashlights, use reflective tape or stickers on costumes and bags, and wear light colors to help kids see and be seen by drivers.
  2. Join kids under age 12 for trick-or-treating.
  3. Slow down and be alert! Kids are excited on Halloween and may dart into the street. Turn on headlights early in the day to spot kids from further away.
  4. Remind kids to cross the street at corners or crosswalks.
  5. When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls. Choose face paint over masks when possible. Masks can limit children’s vision.

Counselor's Corner with Mrs. Dunn

What a great October it's been! Lots of activities and lots of fun, the weather has been great, too! I will be starting to do small groups soon, if you have received a permission slip from me, your child is invited to join in one of these small groups to help with friendship skills, and to just have some fun. We meet in the library once or twice a week during lunch or recess with a small number of students, no more than 7 kids. We talk, do some role plays and activities, and learn about making and keeping friends. If you are interested in a small group, please reach out to me and let me know! I also do divorce groups for kids that are experiencing a divorce or break up in their family, girl's groups, anger management, and more. I am always available if you have questions or concerns via email or phone. Go Raiders!
