October 31st Holiday Events (all events are optional)
This day is a normal school day for all students, except students will be able to wear their costumes to school if they choose. No masks, weapons, or gore are allowed. Students must still be able to participate in learning, so no costumes which would hinder school work (school dress codes still apply).
Parade & Trick or Treating: At 11:30am, there will be a costume parade & “Trick or Treating” around the campus. Parents are welcome to come watch. Students who do not want to participate will have a supervised room set-aside for them where they can play board games during the activities, or they can be signed out by a parent/guardian at 11:30am.
Haunted House: Our annual “Haunted House” will run from 12~12:45. This is an age appropriate haunted house put on by the Middle School Fundraising Elective. Cost is $3 per student or $5 for 2 students.
