HALLOWEEN INFORMATION:
• Halloween Parade: Students and Staff will gather around the lawn area at 8:00 a.m. after morning assembly.

• Halloween Costume “BOOS” and Don’ts!:

The costume must allow the child to function as a student while in class (all morning).

Students need to wear regular shoes for the day while out at recess and PE. Shoes must be changed after the parade.

Care is to be taken and consideration given to the ages of our Student Body. Costumes should not be too scary, gross, or violent.

The following are NOT allowed: weapons, gory makeup, animals, scary clown costumes, or immodest clothing (no bare midriff/short skirts/low cut necklines, etc.).

Students who do not wish to wear a costume may wear orange, black, or white colored non-uniform dress or their school uniform. Please refer to the Free Dress guidelines listed in the Parent-Student Handbook.

BOX TOPS: It's time to turn in those Box Tops! Look for this type of image on hundreds of General Mills products throughout the grocery store (and your pantry)!  Each box top clip is worth 10 cents for our school...it all adds up and it is free money for CTK!  All it takes is a small bit of your time to remember to clip and submit!!!

Our first Box Tops collection deadline is fast approaching! Please turn in all your Box Tops (and Labels for Education) by this Friday, October 20th to either your child's classroom or the front office. If turning into the office, please make sure to include your child's grade so the proper class gets the credit. The class that turns in the most Box Tops and Labels for Education from September - December will get a special treat in January!!!

If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Cooper  jenniferanne_cooper@yahoo.com.
Let's continue to support this great program that makes money for our school! If you miss this deadline, that's ok. Keep collecting and turning them in! We collect them all year long. Happy clipping!
