Cossitt PTC Events and Activities

Halloween Parade/Party Information
The kindergarten party will take place from 10:15 am. until 11:00 am.  The school-wide parade will begin at 1:30 pm, where one classroom will lead the parade and visit other classrooms while each classroom then joins the parade within the building.   From there, we will proceed with walking outside and parading around the school.  If there is inclement weather, we will conduct the parade around the inside of the school, including the perimeter of the gym, before heading back to the classrooms.
With the exception of kindergarten, students should not wear their costumes to school.  They will have an opportunity to change into their costumes in the afternoon before the parade.  Students can change into their costumes if they leave the building during the lunch / recess hour.  Kindergarten will be wearing their costumes to school.
The classroom parties will begin at 2:15 pm. and end at 3:00 pm.  Again, please refrain from sending your child to our building with costumes that depict violence or distract the learning environment at Cossitt School.
