Fall Festival/Halloween Information

Reported by helen_keene@ipsd.org on 10/7/16

On Monday, October 31, May Watts School will celebrate a Fall Festival and Halloween Parade. Various activities integrating curriculum will be occurring throughout the day in all Kindergarten through Grade 5 classrooms. The parade will proceed from the north gym doors and finish up at the south gym doors, weather permitting. We will walk around the building on the sidewalk areas. Please keep this area clear of people, dogs, strollers, etc. The parade will occur at 2:00 p.m. The parade will need to continuously move forward so please do not stop the parade to take photos or talk to your child. In case of inclement weather (i.e. threat of rain), the parade will be cancelled. We will follow the same criteria for any outdoor recess.

The PTA will sponsor room parties for the children. The parties will run from 2:30 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.

Children must be in attendance throughout the day in order to participate in the parade and party.

Children will be permitted to wear costumes and clothing to school that does not interfere with physical education, lunch, and outdoor recess. Accessories (props, masks, etc.) need to be carried to school in a bag and will be permitted to be used and/or worn for the parade only. Since it will be the responsibility of your child to dress himself/herself, please consider this when choosing his/her costume.

If your child will require make-up or colored hair spray for his/her costume, please apply the make-up or spray at home prior to sending him/her to school. No make-up or spray should be brought to school. Costumes should be appropriate in taste for elementary school children with no adult or violent themes, and not so big as to cause problems walking in halls or through doors. Children should be able to see adequately so as not to have an accident. Anything resembling a weapon (gun, sword, knife, sticks, etc.) should be left at home.

The PTA will be providing the students with Chocolate Chunk Cookies and Minute Maid Apple Juice. The ingredients are listed below:

Minute Maid Apple Juice – pure filtered water, concentrated apple juice, less than .5% calcium citrate, vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and potassium phosphate.

**Cookies – bought from Costco.

If your child is unable to have the treat provided because of allergies, please send the school nurse a note informing us of this. You are asked to provide your child with a treat that he/she can have if they have allergies to the cookies being served.

Please do not send in any other treats for the classrooms because of possible food allergies. Treats brought to school will be sent home.

Finally, alternative activities will be planned for children whose families choose not to participate in this event beginning at 2:00 p.m. Please contact Mr. LeCrone through email in order that appropriate activities can be arranged. His email is: brian_lecrone@ipsd.org.

With the excitement of Halloween, please emphasize the need for safety to and from school.
