The school is allowing classes K-8 to wear costumes and we will continue the tradition of the annual Halloween Parade at 11am. The students in grades 1-8 parade through the Early Childhood yard and up to the front of school for a brief assembly. It is simple and brief and ends with a presentation by the middle school and then the students return to classrooms for regular schedule of classes.
Directly following the parade/assembly the students will resume their daily schedule.
Please remember children must wear:
- Costumes that reflect our school’s values (no gore, violent, immodest, or media-inspired characters)
- Be sure your child does not have a mask or all over face paint at school
- No media, no blood, no frightening, or immodest costumes (The students will be seen by very young children)
Please have students bring a change of clothes. (school clothes)
If you are looking for inspiration for a costume for your child just look to the Waldorf curriculum -fairy tales, farming gardening, fables, Norse/Finnish mythology, Greek studies, Medieval and Renaissance, Animal studies, Nature studies, etc.
Note to Kindergarten Families:
Your child may wear his/her costume to school if it will not interfere with pumpkin carving and/or circle and snack. We are happy to help our children get into their costume before coming out to play the games, so please use your discretion as to what will work best for your costume situation. We will NOT allow ANY scary costumes such as vampire, ghosts or zombies or ANY movie/cartoon characters. Costumes that reflect our curriculum are the best suggestions. (Fairy Tales or Mother Goose characters) It would be very sad for a child to be unable to wear the costume that they bring so please check with me ahead of time if you have any questions.
