Happy Halloween

Halloween is on Wednesday, October 31st. We will be having our Halloween parade around the gym after second recess. Students can bring in their costume for this event OR they can wear orange and black.

Parents are asked to please limit the number of treats sent to school AFTER the night of trick or treating to 1 or 2 per day. Studies have shown that sugar does tend to make children hyper and as a result they find it very difficult to concentrate in class. We would appreciate your cooperation with this.
