Information about costumes...Please remember that only Kindergarten and First grade students are allowed to wear costumes to school.  All grades may bring their costumes to change into before the designated time.  EVERYONE must bring clothes to change out of costumes.  We ask that you make sure all costumes are easy for children to put on/take off and appropriate for school.  For example no theme or character of a violent nature should be represented, for safety reasons this includes weapons, fake blood, masks and face paint/make-up that could be accessories to a costume. 

Thank you for your cooperation! ~ Mr. Holway
