Dear Families,

We hope you are enjoying the changing of the seasons and that the start of the school year is going smoothly for your family.

Peninsula Union will be celebrating Halloween on Thursday, October 31st, at 9:45AM, with a school parade around the basketball court (if it is raining we will move inside the gym). Families are invited to come watch! We’d also like to remind everyone that we have a no candy at school policy so please leave those types of treats at home.

When planning a costume for your student, please be mindful that costumes are not allowed to have masks or weapons/attachments (utility belts with removable items, swords, etc.). We ask that families give careful consideration to costume ideas and avoid any costume that shows disrespect to others by drawing on racial, ethnic, class, gender, or other stereotypes. Costumes that reduce another culture to a caricature, such as dressing as a Native American, an Arab, a Gypsy, a Mariachi, or a Geisha, are inappropriate for school, as are costumes that mock poverty (a "hobo"), size (a fat suit), etc. If you have any questions about the appropriateness of your student’s outfit, please give us a call in the office.

We look forward to seeing you at the Halloween Parade. Happy Autumn!
