We are pleased to invite you to join us for our JK to Grade 6 Halloween costume parade at 9:00am on Tuesday, October 31. Nursery children will be peeking at the parade from their classroom windows!
All children are invited to wear costumes and school doors will open at 8:45 am so that they can drop off school bags before the start of the parade. If they require help with their costume, that will be available. We will then proceed into the playground after attendance is taken. The children so enjoy an audience of their friends, parents, teachers, and staff. All classes will gather on or near the benches by the sandbox and we will call one class at a time to showcase their costumes.
Following the costume showcase parade, students and teachers will head to the SK classroom for our Halloween assembly, which will include songs with our Grade 1-6 Music Teacher, Russell Hersen. Once all the classes are in the SK room, the space is completely filled with goblins, magical creatures, and other excitements, and we are sorry that we do not have room for parents at this assembly.
With Halloween and the winter holidays fast approaching, we wanted to share with you ways that can help make our school a safe and more inclusive place for students with food allergies. We prefer that students do not eat candy while at school. At JICS, we avoid sweet treats in all classrooms, preferring wholesome snacks whenever possible. However, there is a place for sweets in our diets and parents may choose to occasionally pack individual portions in student lunches or snacks from home. Students are not permitted to share candy, treats, or gum with others. In preparing your child’s lunch and snack, please be certain that all ingredients listed are free of nuts and nut warnings.
