Halloween at BA

Date: October 23, 2012 Author: kristin Categories: Uncategorized

Farewell Walk-a-jog; Hello Halloween!

Let’s be frank: this wouldn’t be Mr. Triska’s Principal’s Message if I didn’t have a few rules for you to follow– as we join the children in celebrating their favorite holiday of the school year. I appreciate your patience with me.

Costume Parade

This year, October 31 falls on a Wednesday. Like last year, our Halloween parade will be
right after drop-off. If you can join us, please follow these guidelines:

  • Park away from Belle Ave and walk to campus. (We will still have a drop-off line pulling up and dropping off that morning, so please do not park in the pull up line!)
  • If you are entering a pumpkin in the Pumpkin Decorating Contest, please drop it off in the MUR by 8:20.
  • Send your child to class at 8:25.
  • Walk up to the upper playground and GET READY for the amazing 8:40-9:00 parade—the classes will be up right after attendance is taken.
  • School will return to pseudo-normal by 9:05, and you are off to enjoy your day!
  • Thank you for having been here to enjoy the parade with us.
  • Your children’s individual classroom teachers will let you know if they have
  • plans for further celebrations then or at the end of the day.
Costume Rules for BA

This year BA has preschool students! Also, siblings who are even younger will be attending our parade. We ask that costumes be chosen with that in mind, including:

  • No weapons ever at school: toy guns, knives, swords, spears, clubs, etc. are not allowed
  • Please, no dripping gore—consider Sergio Criollo, our beloved, hardworking custodian
Yes, Candy Still Banned At BA

Please keep Halloween candy at home in the days leading up to, and following, Halloween. The intense rush and sudden drop of energy associated with highly sweetened, non-nutritious foods is obstructive to teachers doing their best to focus children’s attention on academic and social learning.

Spooky wishes,
John Triska
