We LOVE Halloween and all it brings at Lincoln Prairie. For years we have embraced the idea that celebrations can look different and should look different based on the vast age span in our school.

On Thursday, October 31, our K-3 students will enjoy dressing in costume, parading around the school, followed by participating in class parties.  Our 4-5 students will enjoy one of their favorite traditions, the Trick or Trade Fair, which will also take place on Halloween. This event ties into their curricular studies and provides them the opportunity to peddle their handmade items while in a theme based costume. Lastly, our Middle Level students will celebrate the holiday on October 25 from 6:30-8:30pm at their annual Halloween Gym Jam.

In addition, we have a few details to ensure we create a safe and enjoyable experience for all. Costumes are welcomed during the above mentioned activities. However, they are not required. If wearing a costume, masks should be avoided to ensure sight isn’t compromised. They should also be free from extreme blood and gore and please do not send any look alike weapons with your child as part of their costume (guns, knives, swords, etc.) K-3 Classroom teachers will send more specific information out regarding the events taking place for Halloween.

We look forward to seeing you at conferences next week!
