Lots of follow up things to address from my initial week 8 updates from yesterday.
Picture Day and Gym
Picture day falls on a Friday (October 26th) which also so happens to be a gym day for 1st grade. I've spoken to Mr. McCracken and he says that students will NOT need to wear their gym uniforms. He will not be grading students on this day for uniforms due to it being picture day.
Autumn Party - BACK ON!!.. but change of date!
Several parents have responded to my email after deciding to cancel it. With this new number of volunteers, our party can go ahead. For those that responded saying that it would work out for them to come in and help, I will send a follow up email by the end of the day today. Please note that I am changing the date from October 31st to Thursday, November 1st. The 31st is our writing museum and the day is going to be a bit too crazy to have that and the Halloween parade. The Autumn-themed party will be from 12:45-2:00 (or later if need be). Please let me know if this new update works for you and you will receive an email with more details later. Sorry for all the confusion and thank you all for your flexibility and willingness to help!
Halloween - October 31st
Students are invited to come to school dressed in orange and black or in a costume.
1. Students will wear costumes that are appropriate for the school setting – The Lenart dress code applies as normal.
2. Students should wear a safe costume that is not disruptive to the school process; nor prevent the child from participating in typical school activities.
3. All costume preparations are to be completed at home.
4. Students will not be allowed to wear any type of mask and/or covering of the face.
5. Costumes may not include ANY type of weapon.
If any of these rules are not followed or the costume is found inappropriate, the student will be asked to change.
All parents are welcome to come join us for the parade. Other non-Halloween activities will be available for students that do not wish to participate in the Halloween parade.
No food treats are allowed to be brought to school for Fall / Halloween classroom celebrations. Your children may bring pencils, stickers, or other small trinkets to celebrate with the class, but we are asking that no candy, cookies, cupcakes or other food treats be brought to school.
