HALLOWEEN PARADE – OCTOBER 31 AT 1:45
On Friday, October 31 we would like to invite all students to participate in our annual Halloween Parade at
1:45 p.m. Students will come to school in their normal uniform and bring their costume in a bag. At 1:30, students
will be able to put on their costumes and prepare for the parade. The parade is “G” rated and all costumes should
be appropriate for all age groups. The following will help you and your child make their costume decisions:
Please remember that we do not want to frighten any of our younger children. What students choose to wear to the parade does not have to define what students are going to be for Halloween. This is a fun community event and we appreciate your guidance for costume selection. Miss Flynn is available if students want to check if a costume is appropriate, but this should happen well in advance of the parade. Thank you for your kind support.
HALLOWEEN SPECIAL DRESS DAY
Show your school spirit! Student Council is sponsoring “Wear Orange and/or Black Day” on Friday, 10-31. Guidelines: Orange or black or orange and black top, uniform bottom and appropriate school shoes.

Get ready to enter the "Kingdom of books!" Naples book fair will be here November 3rd-7th in our school library. The fair will be open 7:30am-8am and in the afternoons from 1pm-3pm.

5 OR LESS CAMPAIGN
This year attendance is included in our API (Academic Performance Index) ranking. To keep our score high, we are setting a goal of 5 absences or less per year and giving students perfect attendance certificates for each month of school. I hope that working together Naples families can reach this goal. It’s cool to be in school.
