Our Fall Party activities will begin at 2:00pm on Friday, October 28th. At 2:15 we will have a costume parade that will take place in the gym. At 2:45 our parties will begin. Classroom Clean Up will begin at 3:15 p.m.
Parents who come to the costume parade and/or party will need to come early to check in either through lobby guard (those who have never checked into lobby guard) or approved sign-in sheets (those who have previously checked in and been cleared by lobby guard).
I would like to make a few comments about costumes. Costumes should be brought to school in a paper bag. Students will put on costumes immediately before the costume parade. Costumes must reflect appropriate themes for elementary students. In other words, excessively frightening costumes or costumes that reflect themes from R-Rated movies should be avoided (e.g. “Scream” and “Freddie Krueger” movies, etc). Costumes should be sufficiently modest (no midriffs, short shorts, or revealing clothing of any kind). Make-up must be kept to a minimum. Please avoid extremely heavy face paint or hair spraying. Facsimiles of weapons are not allowed because they violate the district “Dangerous Weapons Policy.” Appropriate action will be taken if costumes do not meet the appropriate criteria.
I greatly appreciate your support and help in making our fall parties a fun, safe activity for students. Should you have any questions, please feel free to call. Thank you.
Dr. Sheron House, Principal
