Halloween Parties and Parade

Halloween is quickly approaching, and we will celebrate at Army Trail on Thursday, October 31. Classroom teachers will be sending letters home to inform you of classroom activities that will be taking place. As a school, we will continue our tradition of the Halloween parade. The parade will begin at approximately 1:00.

All students can wear costumes to school in the morning. To create the least disruption to the learning environment, please use the following guidelines when sending your child(ren) to school on this day:

  1. Students are not allowed to bring weapons of any kind to school.
  2. Costumes should be appropriate for an elementary school setting. Costumes depicting violence and make-up that is excessively bloody are not appropriate in a school setting.
  3. Students should wear their costumes to school. If your child has P.E., please make sure they have appropriate footwear.
  4. Students will not be allowed to be picked up to go home to put on their costumes. All costumes should be worn to school.

Parents are welcome to come to Army Trail for the Halloween parade at 1:00 and wait along the parade route. Weather permitting, we will exit the building on the east side Door 6, walk east towards Indian Trail down the sidewalk to the District Office and back to Army Trail. The best photo opportunities will be along this path. Parents will not be allowed into the building for safety reasons. If, however, the weather does not cooperate, parents will be welcomed into Army Trail to watch the parade in the gym. In the case of poor weather, all parents must enter through Door 6.

Some reminders:

  • Costumes and masks must be school appropriate (this includes parent volunteer costumes as well)
  • No violent costumes and accessory weapons allowed
  • Students that will not be participating for religious reasons will have adult supervision and other educational activities planned for them in the library


Please consider joining the PTA. We have many really great events planned for the students and families of Army Trail but need help. Joining the PTA only costs $10 for the year. If you would like to join, you will be receiving an envelope this week that can be returned with your membership dues. Check out the two upcoming PTA events for the month of October.
