Halloween is coming and our Halloween Extravaganza will be a family event you will want to attend. When selecting a costume for your child to wear to our event, please be sure that it is appropriate for an elementary school. Safety is the highest priority. Children are not permitted to wear masks, bring dangerous items or bring items that represent weapons. Please refrain from body paint or images on costumes that depict violence or injury. This Halloween event is about fun, not scaring small children. We appreciate your support in creating a safe and fun event for all of our students ages 5-11. Also, please remember that wedo notwear costumes to school on Halloween.
