A Message from the Principal


A sincere thank you to all of those that donated their time and party supplies for the PTA Halloween parties last Friday - especially the Halloween Party Chairpeople Lisa Bruno and Jenna Pierce, Mimi Consolazio and Rosemarie Lakeman. 

As always, school events would not be a success without the tireless efforts of our volunteers.  The evening was terrific and the children had a great time!

Monday, October 31st Halloween Costume Information:

Our students will be allowed to wear Halloween costumes to school for the day.

We ask that when you are helping your child decide what costume to wear to school you consider the following:

  • No costumes involving any type of weapon or offensive in nature will be allowed.
  • Our school has students whose ages range from 3 years old to 14 years old. Younger children can become scared of very graphic costumes.
  • The students will be wearing their costumes all day and should be able to move freely and safely in them.
  • The students should feel free to have fun with the day, however, any student in an inappropriate costume will be asked to call home and a parent will need to bring in a change of clothes.

Halloween Parade information:

  • K-8th grade students will be returning to class after the Parade.
  • Preschool students will dismiss from the playground immediately following the Parade.

Happy Halloween!
