Week 13, for Families and Community Oct. 31-Nov.4, 2022
Dear Altadena Eliot Arts Families,
We had an incredibly fun Friday night with our Trunk or Treat and Movie Night at the elementary and our Haunted Hallway and Creepy Carnival at the middle school. Everyone had so much fun and it was wonderful to see all our happy students! Thank you to all the parents who volunteered countless hours to make these two events a smashing success!
And now on to the business of this week:
For middle school attendance questions, we've added an information corner with Ms. Felicia Lee, our Attendance Clerk. Please visit our Attendance Corner!
Coming Up this Week
Monday: Trick or Treat walking field trip to visit our friends at MonteCedro.
Logistics of the Day
Elementary students will visit MC from 10-11 am
Middle school students will visit MC from 11 am-12 pm
- Students will be given a small bag of candy.
- They will be asked to bring it home before eating and nut free bags are available.
- All students will still have lunch at each site, the time may just shift a bit.
Middle School students who do not meet our general eligibility requirements will stay on campus with a certificated teacher. Please review our activities clearance form and check your child's Parent Portal account to determine their eligibility.
ABSOLUTELY NO MASKS, NO WEAPONS, NO GORE

To keep our students safe, we are asking that families not send candy to school. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

From our middle school PTSA President!
Calling all Huskies!
A party is what you make it, and your PTSA is working to make the Creepy Carnival the first great party of the year at Eliot. That being said, we need volunteers and donations to make this happen. We have games and contests and food and prizes lined up. The price of admission for the Haunted Hallway gets you into the Carnival. The price for games and food is low. There is a "Sign-up-genius" so what are you waiting for?
Let's have some fun!
Can't make it but want to support by contributing?
