OCTOBER 31 – CARNIVAL UPDATE!!
As Halloween falls on Friday this year, the annual Halloween Evening Bash will be cancelled for this year; however, it will return next year. In its place the school will have a Carnival during the day. Please return order forms by Friday, October 24th. Please Note, that the $5.00 covers the cost of admission, games and prizes for every child. Students may come to school dressed in costumes. Please remember that costumes need to be appropriate. Masks and weapons are not allowed and we ask parents to respect that costumes are not too scary or offensive for little children.
The day will split into Gym and Classroom activities. The Schedule for Grades in the GYM is as follows:
Primary K, 1,2,3- 10:30 – 12 :00 (LUNCH) in the classroom and teacher led activities in the p.m.
Intermediate 4,5,6- and 7 leaders 12:00 Lunch and 12:45- Gym Activities until 3:00.
Students will get to have a dance, as all activities costs are included with the $5 admission other than the extra Lunch.
Please Note that the food forms deadline as been extended to Monday Oct 27, and yes all extra orders will be accepted. However, to minimize the numbers of students in the gym at one time, please note parents are welcome at the Carnival to help and participate, however Parents and guests must ask permission of the classroom teachers to stay in the teacher- led activities at the school and in the classrooms.
Thank you for supporting the Halloween Bash! All proceeds from the Bash will be going to our new Technology needs and upgrades.
