Halloween & Alternate Celebrations
Dear Sprague Families,
Sprague will hold Halloween Parties (EC-2) and an Alternate Party( K-2) for students who do not celebrate Halloween on MONDAY, OCTOBER 31. Other than room parents, families are not invited to attend class parties, but weather permitting, they may attend the parades.
Early Childhood Parade

EC AM students should wear their Halloween costumes to school.
Parents are welcome to watch the morning EC students parade through the main hallway.
Students in PM early childhood will join the rest of the school in an outdoor parade (weather permitting) from 1:00 to 1:30 p.m.
Room parents may enter the classrooms to set up for the party and assist students with their costumes, if necessary, at 12:45 p.m. Parties will conclude at 2:00 p.m.
Families are welcome to attend the afternoon EC outdoor parade, weather permitting, which will take place behind the school along the playground sidewalks.

In Preparation for the Parties
To ensure a smooth celebration, we ask for your help in the following areas:
- Students in PM early childhood, full day kindergarten and grades 1-2 should bring their costumes in a bag labeled with their names.
Any item that could serve as a weapon must be left at home.
Wheeled shoes, rollerblades, skateboards, etc. may not be brought to school.
Teachers and room parents will assist with costumes and students' makeup.
Please consult the parking map, which shows where it is legally safe to park near Sprague. Parking is very limited so please arrive early and carpool, if possible.
Our Sprague Halloween parade/celebration takes place on October 31 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. In an effort to be inclusive for all of our students, we are excited to offer an alternate room for celebration for families/students who do not wish to participate in the Halloween themed activities. This Sprague Alternate Party will take place at the same time as the Halloween parade and parties. Please complete this Alternate Sprague Party FDK-2 to indicate your interest in having your child participate. Parents are also welcome to take their children home at the time the parties are scheduled.
Snacks and Treats
Sprague School will not provide snacks or treats for students at its Halloween or Alternate parties.
