halloween-trick-or-treating-neighborhoods-bostonThe pumpkins are carved, the costumes are picked and candy is ready to be eaten… that can only mean one thing… Halloween has arrived at Holy Spirit School!

All children in grades K-4 can dress up in Halloween costumes for the entire day on Friday, October 30th. Grades 5 – 8, if they would like, can also dress up – if they choose not to, we ask that they wear Halloween colors – orange, black, green, purple, etc. Please follow the costume guidelines listed below:

* INAPPROPRIATE/VIOLENT COSTUMES (HORROR, EVIL, ETC.), NO WEAPONS OF ANY KIND AND NO OVERLY LONG DRESSES/COSTUMES/ROBES SO CHILDREN DO NOT TRIP WALKING UP/DOWN STAIRS.

In addition to the Halloween Parade, we will also be having, HOLY SPIRIT’S ANNUAL HALLOWEEN TRUNK OR TREAT which will begin at 2:00 PM in the parking lot directly in-front of the school. This is a beloved event for both students and parents! The children trick or treat to each car – please send in a plastic bag or a trick or treat bag. Parents are encouraged to decorate their cars, play music and even dress up themselves.

Due to space limitations, we will only permit 25 cars to participate – this will be on a first come, first serve basis. Please be sure to have enough candy for each child in the school (which is roughly 275). Since space is limited, we encourage parents to join together and pick one car to decorate, so everyone can participate and chip in with the candy! We want this to be fun for the kids, so please feel free to go all out with your decorations!

If you would like to participate, please fill out the form at the link below and submit to the school office no later than Monday, October 26th. You will receive a letter via email with additional information from Joanne Diorio the Class Parent Coordinator. Everyone is invited and is encouraged to come and cheer our children on… parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, etc. So please come on out and celebrate Halloween with Holy Spirit School!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Joanne Diorio, the Class Parent Coordinator at 201-410-8118.
