October Book Parade - October 31 at 1:00:  for all students that meet their October reading goal (talk with teachers about specific goals).  Students can dress as their favorite book character and participate in our all school parade.  We ask that all students bring the book that shows their character.  Only students that have achieved their monthly reading goal will participate.  So Read, Read, Read!!  Remember...book characters from books they have read.  We are trying to stay away from purely a Halloween style costume day.  Also no weapons, inappropriate themes or scary masks that would frighten young children.

Parents, please help us with the following points:

1.  This is all about your student meeting their reading goal.  If your student does not meet their monthly reading goal, they cannot participate.

2.  Your student's costume needs to be related to a book they have read this month.

3.  Please have your child bring the book that matches their outfit so they can walk with it.

4.  No costumes can include a scary theme that might frighten young children.  Also No Weapons.
