  • FALL FUN AT DAISY---OCTOBER 31st

    FALL FUN 2017

    October 21, 2017

    Dear Daisy Families,

     In the spirit of Fall Fun, giving back to the community and positive school climate, we are planning some special activities with our students and staff at Daisy. 

    On Tuesday, October 31, students and staff are invited to:

    • Bring in a non-perishable food item, to be donated to our local food pantry.
    • Dress in fall colors of orange/black or bring in a costume (in a bag) for a school-wide parade at 2:00 pm in the front circle of our school (weather permitting).
    • Come prepared for a fun day of learning, featuring some special seasonal activities and healthy snacks, planned by our teachers and room parents.

    Please know that many classrooms will have activities going on throughout the day, featuring reading, writing and math activities centered around a fall harvest theme.

    Please also know that dressing in orange/black or a costume is OPTIONAL and that an alternative activity featuring movement/art will be provided during the 2:00 pm parade on October 31 for any students whose families prefer that they not participate in the costume parade.                  

    If you decide to send your child in to school with a costume on October 31st, PLEASE be sure that it is appropriate for our school learning environment.

    Specifically, we ask that costumes (for children and adults) meet these guidelines:

    • Non-violent in theme; no weapons as props.  
    • No masks, thus allowing full vision for safety.
    • The costume is something that your child can easily slip into, independently, for the parade.

    Parents/Guardians are welcome to come view the parade at 2 pm on October 31st.  We will have a sign-in station outside as well as additional supervision on that day.

    Afternoon pre-school students will join K-4 students in the parade, or alternative activity, on the afternoon of October 31st.  Morning pre-school students will have a parade inside the school building at 10:15 am.  Family members are invited to sign in at the office and view the parade from the “Pit,” a central gathering place in the upper wing.

    As always, please let me know your concerns.

    Sincerely,

    Ruth W. Rose

    Ruth W. Rose, Daisy Ingraham Principal
