Emerson Community Charter Library

<<<<REIMAGINE EVERYTHING>>>>

Trick-or-Treat Drive-Thru in the Emerson parking lot on Thursday, October 29th from 4pm to 6pm. Everyone will be required to stay in their cars, and please bring a mask for your protection.

Costume Contest - Looking for the most original and creative costumes or face makeup. No store-bought costumes are allowed. Students should send Principal Watson a short video, no more than 30 seconds, or a series of 5 pictures showing their process and proving that their costume is homemade or that they did their own make up.


Important costume contest criteria:

  1. The single largest criterion is that costumes may not be demeaning to any person or group based on ethnicity, race, religion, nationality, disability, gender, gender identity, or any individual (staff or student) at the school.
  2. Costumes may not express or seemingly condone violence.
  3. Costumes must not be revealing, low cut, or represent adult themes.
  4. Entry videos or pictures must be received before midnight on Halloween.

“I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
