Halloween Dance-a-Thon News!

The super fun Halloween Dance-a-Thon will be held October 30th! Pledge forms will be going home soon, and all money raised will be used to enrich the learning environment and learning experience  for the children.

All the children get to enjoy the dance, which is part of the school’s character rotation. We need volunteers on October 29th to come in at 6:00 pm to decorate the gym (children helpers are welcome to attend!). We also need volunteers on October 30th,  to help with the supervision of the children, to cut open and hand out freezies (all children get a freezie as they leave the dance), and to help with clean-up at 2:30 pm. Parents are welcome to dress up for this event, which features a professional DJ with an amazing sound and light show! If you are able to help out, any amount of time you can offer is greatly appreciated as helping hands are always needed.  Please email our Chair – conniedangelo@yahoo.com, to advise.

We are also accepting  donations of Halloween decorations and children’s costumes (gently used or new), that will be given to those children unable to have a costume. It is our way of ensuring every child is able to enjoy Halloween! Donations of these items can be sent to school or dropped off at the Office.

Wishing everyone a wonderful long weekend!
