Halloween Parties, Costumes, etc 🎃

Halloween parties are Friday, Oct. 29th. Teachers have reached out to homeroom parents regarding party time and needs.

As a treat this year, ALL students may wear free dress or costumes on Friday the 29th. Free dress guidelines regarding appropriate dress still apply. If a child’s clothing/costume is deemed as not having followed the rules, parents may be called to bring a change of clothing.

Teachers MAY send directions specific to their classes regarding costumes such as wearing it over other clothing, bringing a labeled bag for costumes for later in the day, etc. Some teachers may allow students to wear costumes all day long. Please follow the rules below in addition to your teacher's rules.


  • No Full Face Masks or Face Paint - students must still wear their proper PPE face covering

  • No Hair Coloring (wigs are okay)

  • Nothing Gory, Scary, or Inappropriate for school

  • No Weapons

  • Must not interfere with the function of the school day (ex. no noisy or oversized costumes that prevent sitting at a desk)

Safe & Sacred Curriculum

Sometime during the weeks of October 18 - 29, during your child’s regular religious education time, the Safe and Sacred curriculum will be taught. The aim of this program is to teach children how to be safe, protect themselves, and communicate any potential danger. In the Church’s desire to help keep your children safe, the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City requires that all children and young people participating in religious education in any parish or Catholic school in the Archdiocese, receive this instruction. Please be on the lookout for an email going home this week with more detailed information. If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to review the curriculum, please contact Mrs. Ison at

8th Grade Fundraiser

Proceeds from this hat and trash bag sale will help the CSSE 8th Grade Class pay for their year-end trip to Camp Classen as well as the traditional class gift to the school and/or parish.
