Castlemont students have the opportunity to participate in our school-wide Halloween Parade on Thursday, October 31, at 8:30 am.

Please let your child’s teacher know if your child will not participate in this optional activity.

Please keep the following items at home: full face masks, swords, guns or other weapons (even if they are part of the costume) and save face makeup and hair color for your evening celebrations.

Students are encouraged to come to school ready for the parade with an appropriate costume and regular clothing on underneath.  After the parade, children will remove their costumes and regular instruction will begin.  

Parents who would like to view the parade can do so from the blacktop area. So, bring your cameras and/or video recorders and enjoy the show!
