DJ Ozzie will be donating his time at our parade so be sure to thank him! Do not bring anything that resembles a weapon, masks can only be worn during the parade, not in hallways, not in class etc. no full face make up, and hair dye that rubs off. Be sure to bring a change of clothes or better yet wear you costume on top of school clothes. If you do not want your child to participate in the Halloween parade please let your child's teacher know.  We will provide for an alternative activity during the parade time.
