Halloween Guidelines at Brownridge PS

28 Oct

In advance of Halloween, we want to remind all parents and guardians that Brownridge PS is a nut-free school. Please read carefully the packaging of any “treat” your child may be bringing for their personal snack after Halloween night. As well, no treats are to be sent with your child to distribute to the whole class on the day of Halloween. We greatly appreciate your support in keeping our students and staff with life threatening allergies safe.

Students will have the opportunity to wear costumes in the afternoon of Halloween (October 31). As we adhere to the Safe Schools Policy, no masks or replicas of any weapons are allowed. Please be sensitive to the nature of your child’s costume as we have younger students beginning at age 3 in kindergarten at Brownridge PS.

Thank you for your cooperation in this important matter.

The Brownridge Book Fair is November 12th-20th!!!

Volunteers needed! Can you help? It would be greatly appreciated. Training will be provided ☺

We will be drawing for 3 of our volunteers to receive a $25.00 certificate. Once the 3 names have been drawn the volunteers will need to complete an online webinar from the comfort of their home. The volunteers will need to visit a website and sign up for a short session.

Volunteers are needed for  displaying and advertising the event throughout the school (e.g., posting flyers, doing the showcase windows with provided props, thinking of contests to promote the event to students). Please let us know your availability and we will be happy to provide further details.

We also need volunteers for the following specific Days & Times:
