Halloween is tomorrow, and it NHS's Late Start. Please come early as there will be lots of cars needing to park on the street. The back gate will be left open for entry and at the end of the parade so you may want to park in the back on 184th Place.

 

Please come to school dressed in costume. We will begin our parade at 9:00 am after attendance is taken, and students will bring chairs out to the upper grade blacktop. 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.
