Halloween at Aaron Decker School 2017

October 10, 2017


Dear Parents,


It’s that time of year!  Fall is here and we will be having our annual Halloween Parade at 9:00 am on October 31st.   All classes will participate and will parade around the ADS field in costume.  This is a very big event at Aaron Decker and all are invited.  To ensure safety, the parking lot will be closed so please plan to park on Decker Road or at Outback.  At the conclusion of the parade PTA class parties will begin.  Only PTA designated class parents may enter the building and proceed to classrooms at that time.


     In our effort to provide a continued emphasis on Kindness, Respect, and Responsibility, we hope to have only inspiring and safe Halloween costumes during our parade.   Inspiring costumes are non-violent in appearance and set a good example for students. Therefore, please avoid themes of death, violence, killing, blood, etc.  With the continued support of the Aaron Decker School families, we will be able to support a long lasting precedent of good character and positive, healthy emotions daily.   


Here are some details to help prepare your children: 

  • All students should come to school dressed in costume. They can change or remove costume parts after the parties. Please do not allow children to wear masks on the bus. 
  • Please be sure all costumes are age appropriate and safe to walk and move in.
  • NO weapons of any kind are permitted.  NO costumes promoting violence, death, killing, etc. should be worn. Instead we are promoting positive and inspiring themes that are appropriate for young children. 
  • Lunch and recess will take place as usual. It is important that students are dressed for the weather conditions.
  • All food for the parties is supplied by class moms and the food is checked by our school nurse before it goes into the classroom.  NO goodie bags or food items can be sent in with your child or be given out at school or on the bus to ensure safety for all students.


This is always a special event at Aaron Decker.  Please plan to join us and cheer for our children as they enjoy parading in costumes.
