All Saints Day

All students in Pre-School, Kindergarten, First, Second and Third grade will dress up as their patron saint. The students were given their saints on Friday. We request that each child wear their Halloween costume to school and bring their saints costume. Before the saints parade, eighth grade students will help them change into their saint’s costume. Every student is expected to be a part of the activity however it is not necessary for you to purchase expensive items. You are encouraged to be creative and use items that you already have at home. (Suggestion for a saint costume: an angel costume)

This is a fun activity and we welcome the parents to come and watch the younger students parade around the school yard dressed as their patron saint.

The parade will begin at 9:15 A.M. The day will also include a trip to the Haunted House. The Kindergarten class will see the Haunted House with the lights on. Dismissal will be at the usual time, 12:30. Lunch will be a potluck for our class. I have posted a list of things we need parents to sign up for. I will keep updating it. Our room mom, Charisma Hardy, will contact the parents to follow up.

Don’t forget your cameras!


Students are to wear their Halloween costume to school. Every student is expected to be a part of this activity: however it is not necessary for you to purchase expensive items. Costumes should be in good taste, meaning no weapons, masks, graphic violence, immodest dress or inappropriate slogans. After the saints parade, the students will change back into their Halloween costumes. The eight graders will again help the students change into their costumes.

Students are welcome to bring in treats for their classmates. We will pass them out after the Saints Parade.

Don’t forget your cameras.

Halloween Candy Grams

The student council is selling candy grams during lunch time. They are $0.25 each. Students can purchase the grams and have them sent to anyone in the school. The student council will pass them out to the students on Halloween.

October Fiesta
Good Shepherd Catholic Church will be having their annual October Fiesta on Sunday, October 26 in the church parking lot from 1:00-4:00 p.m. It will be $20 for adults and $10 for children.

Picture Retakes

Students will have the opportunity to retake their school photos Monday, October 27.


Each student went home with a “Trick or Treat for Unicef” box. This box is to be taken out with the child on Halloween while trick or treating. When asking for candy, you can also say “Trick or Treat for Unicef” and collect money for this great cause.




Review or complete the math sheet your child is bringing home daily.
