APO HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR – THURSDAY 3:20-5:30pm
The APO has been hard at work putting together a new fun, fall event with the “Halloween Spooktacular,” which is scheduled for Thursday from 3:20 to 5:30 pm. To attend, students must complete a Google Form to sign up with a teacher to do homework from 2:40-3:20 pm. Students then report to the recess area for the event. Tickets are for sale during lunches again on Thursday.
The cost is $5.00 or for $20.00 a t-shirt and admission are provided! Snacks will be for sale at the event. Additionally, the Sand Lake Kiwanis is providing cider and donuts for students!
Thank you to Nicole Gendron and Mindy Matheke for their hard work on this event! We’re looking forward to a great fall celebration on Thursday afternoon.
HALLOWEEN COSTUMES GUIDELINES FOR 10/31
As a result of our outstanding response to the AMS Food Drive Competition, our goal was met and students are allowed to wear school appropriate costumes on Halloween – Monday, October 31st.
Rules for student costumes were shared via the morning announcements with this video. The slides from the video are available here. Students are encouraged to see a teacher or Mr. Messia if they have questions about their costume choice.
We are looking forward to a fun day on Monday with all of our students and thank our families for being so generous with this year’s food drive.
