On Wednesday, October 31, we will be celebrating Halloween by having our Annual Costume Parade and Halloween Room Parties. All parade spectators will remain outside for the duration of the parade. Our parade will begin at 12:45 PM and follow this route:
- The students will exit the back doors
- We will take the path behind the parks and use the sidewalk on Salem
- We will enter the building using the front doors
- Students will go directly to their classrooms for their party
In choosing an appropriate costume for your child to wear at school, please adhere to the following guidelines:
- No weapons or “look-alikes” of any kind (squirt guns, plastic swords, etc.)
- Ensure that costumes are appropriate and inoffensive to all ages at our school
- Keep make-up to a minimum (there is only a short time given to students to change into costume)
- No one should wear make-up or costumes to school in the morning
- Be certain that your child can see through any mask or head covering
- Students will not be allowed to pass out food items to their classmates
All Halloween room parties will begin immediately following the parade and end by 2:15 PM. If you are volunteering in a classroom, please check into the office at 12:30. Only those people that are on the volunteer list in the main office will be allowed to help at the party.
Saturday October 27th is national “MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY” Enders-Salk students will be participating in our 24th annual Turkey Trot and Food Drive in support of make a difference day.
This event will take place on Monday, November 5th. Each student has been asked to bring a canned good, boxed item or paper product donation to school. These essential items will be given to the WACO organization and District 54 food pantry. They distribute baskets to needy families for Thanksgiving and the holiday season.
The ambassadors will be placing a Turkey Trot box outside your classroom the week of October 22nd.
Pantry items can be brought in starting October 22nd – November 5th and placed in the turkey trot box in your classroom. We are trying to break our last year’s record of 1874 items collected, with 67% of our students and staff participating in this donation.
In conjunction with the food drive, we will hold the Turkey Trot on Monday, November 5th. In this event students are eligible for prizes based on who comes closest to their estimated run time in the ½ mile run.
School Picture Retake Day is Tuesday October 23rd from 1 pm – 2:30 pm. All new students (since September 18th) or those who were absent on Picture Day should have their photos taken. Order forms will be sent home but you can also order online at mylifetouch.com using Retake Day ID: RN038027Q1.
