The SNS Community Staying Connected
The Annual SNS Halloween celebration and Upper School tailgate party will take place next Friday, 10/30. All students are welcome to dress down that day in Halloween colors (e.g., green, orange, purple and black). Students in 1st to 6th grade may bring costumes to wear for the morning parade. Because of COVID restrictions, we respectfully request parents do not attend the morning parade and only 8th grade parents attend the 8th grade girls vs. boys’ field hockey game in the afternoon. Mr. DeSimone will be filming the morning parade and will post the video on the school’s YouTube channel. Everyone’s understanding and cooperation is appreciated!
