Save the date: OCT 30th - Material Distribution & Pre-Halloween Fun!

Don't miss our fun and festive Halloween Material Distribution. We are going to make this Distribution fun & festive! Come dressed in a costume and listen to music while your teacher hands out your materials.

Your classroom teacher will let you know your distribution time! Ask them!

Also, PLEASE-PLEASE add pictures of your students all dressed up in their costume to Konstella. Happy Halloween!


Please watch the video with your children. Help them practice wearing a mask correctly. Make it FUN! Pretend to be Superhero's saving the world! Offer a reward system for good mask wearing! Sooner or later we will all be back to school and masks are going to be part of the new normal.

Please continue to practice masking wearing and hand-washing with your child as often as you can.

Thank you,
