Our annual Villa Halloween Parade for Kindergarten through Grade Eight will begin on Friday, October 28th, at 8:45am! Led by Mr. Milroy, Mrs. Elsner and Mr. Joseph, the parade will wind through the halls and classrooms of Villa. We will travel only on the second and third floors, making it safer for everyone to show off the truly creative costumes that have become legendary in our school. Parents are encouraged to stay after drop off and watch the parade. A great place for viewing the parade will be in the main foyer or along the second or third floor hallways. The Parlor is reserved for Kindergarten students and their Grade 8 buddies only. (Preschool students will celebrate Halloween on Wednesday, Oct. 26th and will have their own parade for just their classes.)
As we think about the school Halloween celebration let’s review our Villa Academy costume guidelines.
- Costumes should be appropriate for a Preschool through Eighth Grade audience in a school environment. Excessive “blood, gore, and wounds” are to be left at home and saved for trick-or-treating. Although these can be fun for older students, they can be frightening for little ones.
- Also to be left at home for the school day on October 28th are all weapons, pretend or real. These include, but are not limited to: guns, axes, scythes, knives, pitchforks, sticks, light sabers, etc. These can be great fun when children go trick- or-treating or attend family parties, but can be dangerous at school.
- Costume accessories should be tasteful and appropriate for a Preschool-Eighth Grade audience. Such things as fake cigarettes, pipes, and lighters should not come to school.
- Masks and headpieces should also stay at home, unless the wearer’s face is completely visible. They should also allow the owner to easily navigate halls and stairs.
- Finally, we ask your help in making sure that costumes are age appropriate for Villa students, and are not overly revealing (length of skirt, neckline, see-through, etc.) or offensive. Costumes should be comfortable enough (including shoes) for students to parade up and down stairs as well as sit in class.
Thanks for your help in making sure ALL students have a fun, safe, and happy Halloween!
