Storybook Character Dress-Up Day - October 31, 2013

To motivate students to read more, we encourage them to participate in Storybook Character Dress-Up Day. Students should bring to school the book from which they chose their storybook character.

In order to make this an effective experience, please keep to the following guidelines:

Help your child pick out or make a costume that will be safe.

Students will not be allowed to wear masks of any kind. Masks can obstruct a child's vision.

Facial make-up is acceptable.

Costumes should not be so long that they are a tripping hazard.

Shoes need to be appropriate to play in.
