Elementary students will be social distancing on October 28 and trick-or-treating one class at a time in a spooooky hallway.  We will be collecting candy all month until Wednesday, October 27 for the trick-or-treating.  The classes that collect the most candy will win a party!  Please send your candy donation with your child to their classroom teacher in unopened bags.
