Halloween at the Elementary School (SEL - Grade 4)

Dear Parents:

On Wednesday, October 31, 2018 our Elementary School (School Entry Level through grade 4) will celebrate Halloween. Our celebration will start after the first break. Students in grades 1 through 4 can bring costumes to school to change into before we start the celebration. SEL students may come to school wearing their costumes, however, please provide another set of regular clothing so that they can change out of their costume after the festivities.

At 10 am the entire Elementary School will watch the popular “Mad Science” show with Halloween experiments in the auditorium. Then, our annual Halloween parade will lead us through the main building and we will go trick-or-treating at the office of our Head of School, Mrs. Palenzatis. After that, all grades go to their regular lunch break and recess.

Please ensure that your children leave any accessories like face-covering masks and any kind of toy weapon, such as pistols, rifles and knives at home.

We thank you for understanding and look forward to creative costumes!

Your Elementary School Team
