“When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.”
Friday will be a “spooktacular day”!  All Hallow’s Eve will be a day full of viewing creative costumes and participating in holiday activities.  There will be a “Candy Cornhole Challenge” held during both lunches in the cafeteria.  Students may sign up for this exciting activity on Wednesday and Thursday during both lunches. One lucky winner from each grade level will receive a special prize for their participation in the challenge. Please keep in mind that the LPS District Dress Code will be enforced for this holiday.  No masks or hooded costumes and all face paint must be kept to a minimum – we must be able to recognize you!  BE POSITIVELY CREATIVE keeping in mind others feelings…
“When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.”
