Jane Addams Fall Celebration - October 31, 2022

At Jane Addams, we will have a Fall Celebration on October 31st beginning at 1:10.

Students may come in costume and we will have a parade around the outside the grounds of Jane Addams. Your teachers will provide a virtual stream of the event if you are unable to attend. If the weather is poor, we will simply broadcast and have the parade travel inside the school halls on the 31st.

A Fall Celebration will also occur after the party until dismissal at 2:15. If your child would like to opt out of the costume, they may join others in our school library for crafts. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you have any questions or concerns. Once again, this is food free event.
