Dear Parents & Guardians,
I am proud to inform you that we have had a most wonderful school opening this year! It was so nice to receive your complimentary emails and thank you notes from so many of you. Your continued support is truly appreciated. Our staff is truly doing an amazing job! This is evident by my visits to classrooms and my conversations with students, staff and parents.
I want to inform you that this year, our school will be participating in our Annual Halloween Parade on Thursday, October 31st. The parade will take place outdoors (weather permitting) in front of our school starting at 9:30am and lasting about forty five minutes. If we have inclement weather, we will modify the program and parade around Father Dooley Hall.
A team of judges (Ms. Pennacchio, Ms. Oliva and Ms. Sama) will select the top winner in each category:
Elementary School (K-4)
Upper School (5-8)
The students will have the opportunity to parade around the block twice in their costumes. Face make-up is permitted. For safety reasons, face masks and weapons are NOT permitted.
Please be advised that in order to be a potential costume winner, your child’s costume must be CREATED AT HOME…..not store bought. Of course store bought costumes are allowed, but only homemade costumes will be considered for this contest. Please send your child dressed in his or her costume on Halloween. If they opt to change their own clothing after the event, they will be able to do so.
I hope that you are able to join us for our Halloween Parade. Our children have to be celebrated and we have to remember just how wonderful childhood is. School should be a place that is both educational and enjoyable as well. After all not only are we developing the leaders of tomorrow, but we are also creating the memories of tomorrow!
If for any reason you do not want your child participating in this school wide event, please notify your child’s teacher in writing on or before Wednesday, October 30th and arrangements will be made to keep your child inside at this time.
Your partner in education,
Frederick M. Tudda
