Halloween Party News

The 3rd grade Halloween parties will be on Thursday, October 31 from 1:15-2:00.  That morning,  send your child’s costume in a bag with their name written on it.  We will keep it in a safe place until students get dressed prior to the party.  Please, no bloody outfits or weapons.

Each class can have 6-8 volunteers at the party.  Because of parking and other safety issues, we can only have parents that are volunteering in our classroom here for the parties. 

Lily’s mom graciously volunteered to plan this year’s party. She has the sign-up sheet from Open House and will be contacting parents to volunteer their time or donate items. 

One of our district security officers will assist with checking volunteers into school on the day of the party.   The teachers will provide a list of parent names for those volunteering for the party.  Please make sure you have your background check completed so that we can make sure that all volunteers are on the approved list with a cleared background check.
