For the fall party, full day kindergarten, and first through fifth grade students are invited to bring their Halloween costume to school to wear for the Halloween parade and party. Please do not send your child to school wearing his/her costume. Students will be given time to change into their costumes prior to the Halloween parade. Please make sure your child’s costume is able to go over their clothes. Half-day kindergarten students are allowed to wear their costumes to school, since their school day is shorter.
As a school tradition, the students will have a Halloween parade outside of Grand Prairie Elementary School. Families and friends are invited to attend the parade. The morning kindergarten parade for A.M. Kindergarten students will begin at 10:25 a.m. Kindergarten students in the morning will exit from Door C turning right on the sidewalk, parade in the front of the school, and re-enter the building at Door A. The afternoon parade for kindergarten through fifth grade students will begin at 2:00 p.m. For the afternoon parade, students will begin the parade at Door A, turn left at the sidewalk, parade around the school, and re-enter the building at Door F. For safety reasons with the traffic of cars in the parking lot, the students do not parade on the side of the school near the gymnasium. The parade will last approximately fifteen minutes. If it is inclement weather, the parade will be held in the school gym.
