Halloween with a Focus on Helping Our Neighbors

Dear Parents/Guardians,

For many people, Halloween is their favorite holiday. Again this year, NHCS will be taking a little time out of our school day to celebrate as a community our students’ creativity, to have some fun and collect nonperishable food items for our local food banks.

Below is various information about this celebration.

Halloween Celebration—Thursday, October 31st

 Costume Expectations

• Costumes will reflect the school rules and dress code (no swords, knives, guns, or weaponry, belly-shirts, short skirts, etc.).

• Costumes should have a positive theme (no violence, gore, blood, etc.).

• Although students want to “dress up”, please limit the amount of make-up and face painting.

• Please use this opportunity to choose a historical person, favorite character in a story, an inspiring artist or athlete.

If a child does come to school with inappropriate costumes and/or accessories, the student will not be permitted to wear the costume. As a community, we need to take the initiative in keeping this a wholesome event.

Students will get into their costumes around 12:45 p.m. As a school community, we will start the parade around 1:00 p.m. Students will leave their classrooms, with their nonperishable food items, walk around to the “witches’ den” and parade around the complex of our school. Students will then return to their classrooms for individual celebrations.

Thanks in advance for helping to provide a great afternoon of celebration and help pack the local food banks with items.

Have a great long weekend!


P.S. On October 28, we are having a parent meeting regarding our upcoming Ski Program. At this meeting, we will have a discussion regarding staying at Ragged Mountain or possibly heading up to Loon. We will also be looking for a coordinator(s) of the program, chaperones and talk about expectations. The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. and will run for about an hour.
