WEEK NINE - OCTOBER 16TH - 18TH

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. 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.

We will be parading outside this year. We invite you to drop your children off, find a parking stall, pull out the lawn chairs, choose a good seat on the parade route and stay for the “Monster March.” Students will assemble in their classroom and after the morning bell and announcements, we will begin our parade. The ghouls and goblins will exit from the school, parade around the sports park, re-enter and parade through the halls; dropping each class off at their classroom door.

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

Come watch the fun!
