Thinking Ahead...As a reminder when you are looking for your child's Halloween costume, please keep in mind that we are a Christian school.  Please no makeup, swords, weapons of any sort, or anything overly scary or demonic.  Save that for trick-or-treating if necessary.  Students will change into their costumes after recess and should be able to get themselves dressed.  All afternoon parties are from 1:30 - 3:00.  I am looking for some parent help for the party.  Please let me know if you are interested.  We will visit the other classrooms quickly, and we usually have a game or two, maybe a Halloween movie, maybe a craft, some food/drinks and sometimes students share treats they bring in, etc.  Keep in mind we have a student with a peanut allergy.
