Halloween Celebration Day at SJC

Halloween is at the end of this month, and it is always a very exciting and fun day here at SJC. Below are Costume Guidelines which can also be found in the Tuesday Newsletter. Please make sure you follow these when choosing your
child’s costume.

We will hold our Celebration Day at SJC on Tuesday, October 31. It includes class parties, a costume parade, and a Mission Carnival. All profits will be donated to the missionary work of a service organization. We will be asking your child to bring in his/her Mission Carnival ticket money ($5.00) during Halloween week. A flyer and ticket order form was sent home in the Tuesday Envelope and is attached to this article.
