HALLOWEEN AT PROVIDENCE

10/25/17

Classroom Parties

Each classroom will have their own costume party tomorrow. We will enjoy some fun Halloween themed games, music, dancing, pumpkin carving and health(ier) treats all morning. We are suggesting you send your child in tomorrow, dressed in their costume. Consider serving your child a very light breakfast as we will be serving, muffins, fruit, cheese and juice in the morning during the party. If your child's costume does not fit over clothing, feel free to send in a change of clothes and we will help them change after the party.


We have decided to pass on a school wide parade at the school this year in effort to limit the amount of commitments families have on the actual Halloween Day. However, this Wednesday evening children can also join some fun along with Providence Families as they join together and parade in the Collegeville Halloween Parade at 6:30pm. Providence Families would like to march in the parade as a group. The parade march will begin at 6:30 PM. The parade will conclude around 7:30pm. There is no admission fee. Below is some helpful tips about the evening events:

There is no need to register for costume judging or the parade - just bring your costumed children (or pet), and meet in the parking lot behind the AmeriGreen Gas Station and Chow Bistro (454 E.

The parade begins its walk down Main St. at 6:30 p.m.

Ursinus College is providing free parking in the Corson Hall lot for parade goers. New this year is that the student activities board will also provide crafts and activities for young children prior to the parade from 5 p.m. on the front lawn of the Berman Art Museum.

The parade has expanded this year to include the PVHS marching band and PVHS cheerleaders. The Keystone Grange is parading antique tractors. The Collegeville and Trappe Fire Companies and ambulances will finish the parade. For the finale, Mrs. Claus arrives in a Collegeville Fire Company fire engine.All families will meet
