Students will change into their costumes at school:

  • Family members can meet students on the Upper Yard in their usual Morning Circle locations.
  • Check with your student's teacher to see if they need in-class volunteers.
DO NOT bring:
  • Edible treats of any kind - to honor our healthy eating values and to help contain the energy of our children
  • Weapon-like items (scythes, sickles, swords, wands, etc.)
Adults:
  • You are welcome/encouraged to dress up, but please DO NOT wear a mask.
  • Please remain on the outside of the Morning Circle.
