Halloween parade

Date: Tuesday - October 31, 2017
Time: 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM
All families are welcome to attend our annual Halloween parade. The parade for grades K-5 will begin in Lower School at 8:30 am sharp near the science room and end at 8:50 am on the Lower School green. (If it is raining, the parade will conclude after touring the Upper School, and children can meet their parents back in the classroom for final photos.)

Pre-K students and their families should gather in the pre-K by 8:15 am. They will then walk over as a group and watch the parade from the kindergarten playground. Afterwards, they will walk back to enjoy their own festivities. If it rains, they will not go to Lower School but will remain in the pre-K. They should follow the same costume guidelines
as the rest of Lower School. Check the pre-K Hub page for more information.

All children who are participating in the parade should wear their costumes to school. As a Quaker school, we ask that students not wear costumes that are overly scary or violent, or military clothing such as camouflage or other depictions of war. We also ask that they do not carry toy weapons (swords, guns, etc.) or other violent accessories that may be part of their costumes.

Be sure your child brings a change of clothes to school. Children will change into school clothes following the festivities and should remove all face paint, etc. Regular classes will resume later in the morning.

Alternate Activity for Children Who Don't Celebrate Halloween
Out of respect for the diversity of our community, as we have done in past years, we will provide an alternative activity for children whose families do not celebrate Halloween. To sign up for this option, contact Lisa Reedich (ext. 171) by Oct. 27.
