In celebration of Halloween, *Primary, Elementary, and Middle School
students are invited to participate in our annual costume parade. Parents are invited to stay for the parade, followed by a short singalong for Primary and Lower Elementary students and parents.
Primary, Elementary, and Middle School students may come to school
dressed in costume. Primary children should wear their costumes over their
clothes so that they can easily be removed after the parade, while Elementary
children can *bring *clothes in a bag to change into after the parade. We
request that costumes are tasteful and do not restrict a child's movement.
No masks or play weapons of any sort, please!

entrances for morning drop off as usual or feel free to park your car and

Parents are welcome to have a cup of coffee in the main foyer while waiting

On the day of the trip, students should bring:
-$30 - $40 to buy lunch (no more than $40 please)

On Wednesday October 26, we will be doing a safety inspection of all bicycles. On this day, students should bring their bicycles, helmets, and bike locks to school and place them in the gazebo adjacent to the Elementary/Middle School parking lot. Bikes should be in good condition with tires inflated and brakes checked. The bicycle should be the correct size for the student and the student's helmet must fit snuggly with no cracks. Bicycles must be taken home following the field trip.
