On Friday, October 29th, Hegarty School will be celebrating Character Day. Students may have the option to wear costumes representing their favorite literary character. In connection with the library curriculum, students have been asked to share with their classmates a brief description about their favorite character. For safety reasons, masks, face paint, or capes are not permitted for adults and children. Also, students should wear costumes that do not restrict or limit them from normal classroom activity.
Students in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade will parade around the outside perimeter of the school at 10:00 am. Parents are welcome to attend the parade. In case of inclement weather, the parade will be cancelled. Students in 3rd and 4th grade will share a brief description about their character with their classmates during the school day.
In addition, classroom activities are scheduled to take place. Food brought to school must follow the approved district snack list, be store-bought and individually wrapped, with an ingredient label approved by the school nurse beforehand. The approved snack list can be found on the district website. Items not on the list and individually wrapped, cannot be distributed to students. Healthy, nutritional snacks are encouraged. “Goodie bags” are not permitted due to the need to check all contents of each bag. However, “activity bags” may provide a positive alternative in place of bags containing food, as long as the items are labeled suitable for students of the given age. Class parents are asked to communicate with their child’s teacher about this.
Students who do not wish to participate are not expected to do so. There will be an alternative plan in place for these students. If you prefer for your child not to participate, please send a note to your child’s classroom teacher indicating such.
We look forward to an engaging and creative day for all involved!
