Rohwer families,

The Rohwer Halloween Parties and Parade will be held on Wednesday, October 31st. The school parade will start at 1:45. The parade route is being shortened this year due to Wednesday early dismissal. (See Parade Route below). It is with children's safety in mind that only parents who have signed up to volunteer for the Halloween parties attend the classroom parties. Below is our “Everything-you- wanted-to-know-about-Rohwer-Halloween-Parties.”

1. Grade level parties (games and activities) are planned by the room parents.

2. Costumes should come to school in a bag or sack. Children should not wear costumes to school in the morning. Staff will help students put on their costumes prior to the party.

3. We do not have enough restroom space for all students to change into their costume in the privacy of a restroom. Students should be able to put their costume on in their classrooms.

4. Costumes should be age appropriate, no weapons.

5. No face makeup will be used for the school party. It is uncomfortable and disruptive to wear all day. Students will NOT be allowed to put on face paint or hairspray at school.

6. Children do not have to wear costumes but will be asked to join in for the games and snacks.

7. The party is optional. Parents may ask to have children excused from the party (please send a note). If the child leaves for just the party, no absence will be recorded. If a child does not come to school at all, a full day’s absence will be recorded; likewise, if a child leaves at noon, then ½ day absence will be recorded.

8. Be aware, parking will be difficult. No parking on the curb as buses and vans will arrive as usual.

Report cards are being sent home today in Friday folders.

Rohwer Halloween Parade Route

The parade route will be in the Rohwer Drop-off Lane. We ask visitors to please line up on both sides of the drop-off lane and students will walk down the middle of the lane. We will have cones blocking off the entrance and exit to the drop-off lane.

Rohwer is hosting a special Veteran’s Day Assembly for our students and honorees on Monday, November 12 at 9:00 AM in the Rohwer Gym.

We would like to read the names of those we honor that have served, or are serving, this country with pride.
