October is a time to celebrate the season of pumpkins, foliage and Halloween. Heartworks Schools will have a Halloween Celebration on Monday October 31st.
This year we will walk into Stowe wearing our costumes and meet on the green in front of Icy Scoops to watch the Halloween parade from the elementary school. We will leave Heartworks at 12:30 so that we have enough time to walk; the parade starts at 1:15. We will definitely need parents to volunteer to help us walk safely to the parade. Please let me know if you are interested in volunteering for Halloween. A sign-up sheet to volunteer will be on your child’s communication board. Thank you!
In years past children have dressed up like animals, athletes, community helpers, clowns, storybook or fairy tale characters. In keeping with the philosophy of Heartworks, we ask that the costumes reflect a peaceful representation of a character rather than one of fear or violence. Please refrain from frightening costumes, masks or weapons of any kind (guns, knives, swords, etc.). Please avoid commercialized movie or television characters and superhero-type costumes (such as Power Rangers, Spiderman, Batman, etc.). We appreciate your efforts in coming up with costumes that are fun and reflect the playful, creative childhood spirit of Halloween.
