PTA Ghostly Halloween Fall Event

The PTA, along with some school staff, are excited to announce that we WILL be holding an after-school Halloween Party this year!


This is what you can look forward to:


On Friday 10/29 from 3pm - 5:30 pm, we will be holding the party on the closed block of Downing between Gates and Putnam. There we will have some sweet treats, pumpkin decorating, book giveaways, old-school Halloween guessing games (think candy corn in a jar!) and the kids will get to Trick or Treat in costume at some tables set up along the block!


*Please note that school pick-up will remain the same and that students attending the Halloween event will need to be there with an adult  (not a teacher) as school staff will no longer be responsible for them once pick-up occurs.


More details on the actual event to come...but in the meantime, we need your help!


We are asking that if you are able to, please donate to the event in some way.

We would appreciate parent involvement in the following ways...


Donations of:

- Candy! We will place a box at the security table at the school's Gates Ave entrance where you can leave bags of candy that will be used at the event. *Please see candy guidelines at the bottom*


-Sweet Treats: Nut-free baked goods or snacks of any kind that can be brought on the day of the event.


-Your time at the event: We will be asking for parent volunteers to help out with things like set-up, clean-up, food servers, assistance at the pumpkin decorating table, etc. 

A link to sign up to volunteer through Konstella will be posted today!
