Principal Moment

There are certain triggers that always wind children up: rain clouds, wind, a close game in PE, and – the week before Halloween.  The closer the calendar gets to that day, the more bonkers children become. 

To be perfectly fair, it’s not completely the kids’ fault that they can’t stay focused.  Teachers are partly to blame.  We read aloud Halloween stories, draw haunted houses, sing “pumpkin carols,” and graph candy corn. 

On Halloween, we will begin our morning with a Halloween parade at 9:00 AM.  Into the school on Halloween morning will walk Superman, a clown, an angel, some devils, the Disney princesses will be present, maybe an astronaut, a pack of Ninjas, Darth Vader, and possibly some pirates. 

If the weather cooperates we will parade around the Sports Park. Halloween Parade Line-UP will be:

  • Office Staff
  • 6th grades
  • 5th grades
  • 4th grades
  • 3rd grades
  • 2nd grades
  • 1st grades
  • Kindergarten

Parade Route: Exit the main entrance doors, cross at cross-walk, have a Zombie walk around the sports park, enter the building through the doors by 4th grade, continue parade line-up down 6th grade-5th grade hall, enter the gym.  Once all are assembled, we will sing a few “pumpkin carols” as a school and then return to class.  PTA parties will be in the afternoon. 

If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we will go to the gym at 9:00, sing “pumpkin carols” together and then at 9:30, teachers and students will exit the gym in the following order:

  • Office Staff
  • Kindergarten
  • 1st grades
  • 2nd grades
  • 3rd grades
  • 4th grades
  • 5th grades
  • 6th grades

We will parade around the halls once and then on the second trip around, classes will drop from the parade when the class nears the classroom.  PLEASE NOTE:  if the weather is inclement, we have very limited space in the gym.  We are a school of nearly 1000 students/faculty and we fill the gym to near capacity.  We discourage parents from joining us in the gym and instead find a great spot to lean against the walls and take pictures as the ghouls parade by.

Afternoon Kindergarten will begin their parade at 12:30 p.m. They will parade around the Kindergarten Playground.
