École St. Pius X - Come to School Wearing Your Halloween Costume!
Students are welcome to wear a Halloween costume for the day. Students are asked to come to school with their costumes and makeup on at 9:00 a.m. Class time will not be given for students to get their costumes and/or makeup on.
Student costumes must be appropriate for school. This means that anything depicting violence, blood or gore (such as bloody masks, weapons) will not be accepted. Costumes that violate the school dress code will not be accepted.
Students will be asked to remove capes or flowing costumes during recess time to ensure the safety of all students on the play structures. Accessories such as lightsabers or magic wands will also not be allowed on the playground.
Parents are most welcome to join us for the Costume Parade in the afternoon. We will begin at 1:00 and travel to each class to pick up students along the way. You are welcome to watch along the route and share in our fun!
Halloween is an exciting day in the school and a fun day for children to use their gifts of creativity and imagination. Halloween and its back-to-back feast days of All Saints Day and All Souls Day also gives us the chance to talk about our favourite saints, to learn from their example and to ask them to pray for us. We will mark the feast days of All Saints (November 1) & All Souls (November 2) days with prayers. Have a happy Halloween & a blessed All Saints & All Souls Day.
A Halloween Prayer
We thank you for the fun of Halloween and we praise you for the gift of the saints. Through their prayers, may we have a safe and happy Halloween
and may we be reminded that we too are called to be saints. Amen.
