Halloween will be celebrated on Friday, October 29. Primary, Elementary, and Middle School students are invited to participate in our annual costume parade. Note that this year, due to our health and safety guidelines, the parade will be by cohort, for students only. Unfortunately, we are not able to invite parents to be onsite at this event, but we will be sure to share pictures with you!
The infant and toddler children will celebrate Halloween by doing some fall classroom works but will not wear costumes. Please do not send your child in costume or bring in a shared snack. We appreciate your cooperation.
Children are invited to come to school dressed in their Halloween costumes. After the parade children will remove their costumes when they return to the classroom. Please do not bring in a special snack or candy to share.
A few considerations for costumes:
- Children should wear their costumes over their clothes so that they can easily be removed after the parade.
- We request that costumes and shoes are age-appropriate and do not restrict a child’s movement.
- No full-face masks or play weapons of any sort, please!
Lower Elementary students may wear their costumes to school, being sure to bring an extra change of clothes for recess. We will have a small Halloween celebration in the morning – students may pack a special treat for their own snack if they would like. Teachers will discuss the plans with the LE students and will send a reminder note home the night before.
Upper Elementary is planning a day of Halloween fun! Students are asked to come dressed in their costumes and bring clothes to change into after the parade. We request that costumes are comfortable, tasteful, and do not restrict the child’s movement. No play weapons of any kind or costume-related face mask should be brought to school. In keeping with our yearly tradition, 4th and 5th-grade students will prepare and present plays. The students will watch a movie in the afternoon and enjoy an individual sweet treat brought from home.
Those who would like to come in costume may, but we ask that they bring a change of clothing. Students will depart for their annual bike trip to Princeton following the parade.
