Bella Vista Families,

Happy Halloween!!!  I love October!  It’s time to crunch leaves, drink cider, and read a scary story!  Boo!

October means Halloween!  I don’t know about you, but our students are very excited for Halloween and our costume parade on October 31, at 9:15 AM.    For this year, we are planning to parade outside on the south playground instead of in the gym. 

Here’s the school’s plan: 

  • We will collect the students in the school by grade so we are a long line of costumed tigers, and then we will make our way outside to the back of the school where we will walk in a big circle around our friends and family. 
  • After circling around a couple of times, we will make our way back inside for Halloween fun!

Here’s what the school needs you to do:

  • Send your students to school in their costumes.
    • Remember:  No masks, weapons, or facsimiles of weapons.
  • Bring your blankets and hot cocoa and find a viewing spot by the playground.
    • Bring your own folding/lawn chairs.
    • A parade route map is forthcoming so you will know where to set up your chairs.
  • Take pictures, wave, greet, and smile as you watch the tigers on parade.
  • We are requesting that no parents enter the school after the parade. 

Inclement weather:  No problem!  We will have the traditional costume parade inside the school gym.

After the parade, all students will participate with their grades in Halloween activities sponsored by the PTA:  A Halloween walk on the stage (student friendly), a Halloween treat, and a Halloween craft. 

It’s bound to be a “spook-tacular” day!
