Most schools have many traditions surrounding Halloween. I want to remind you of how we participate in Halloween festivities at Flatirons. The classroom parties are as follows:
KG AM Class - 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
5th Grade - 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (lunch Halloween Party)
3rd Grade - 12:15 p.m. - 1:15 p.m.
1st Grade - 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
4th Grade - 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
KG PM Class - 1:40 p.m. - 2:40 p.m.
2nd Grade - 1:45 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.
Students are not expected to wear any costumes to school. They will be allowed time to change into costumes before their parties begin. Your child’s teacher will be providing information about what the plans are for their class.
Costumes must be safe and not include any type of weapon, be it plastic, wood, Styrofoam, etc. This includes sabers, pitchforks, play knives, play guns, etc. Costumes should not be excessively gory. Please call the office with questions before Thursday.
Another way for families to enjoy Halloween is to donate to UNICEF. This effort has been going on for many years at our school. UNICEF will use the proceeds from our fundraising to help provide children in other countries with medicine and immunizations, nutrition, clean water and sanitation, education and emergency relief. UNICEF boxes will be coming home with students.
I hope you have a safe and happy Halloween.
