October 30 Harvest Lunch Parties 11:00am

It is a tradition to have parents participate in our festivities for this day, but due to COVID19 we will not be having our annual Trunk & Treating. We must limit visitors, so we can’t have parents at our lunch parties either. We request each family bring a bag of candy, fruit snacks or stickers by Oct 26th. We will hand out bags of treats during our lunch parties. Please drop it off in the school office. We are all disappointed in the way things must be this year, but we are going to make it fun for our little goblins.

Classroom Harvest Parties
-Please sign up in your child’s classroom to bring a special lunch item

Costumes
-Children can come in their costumes.
-Please provide a change of clothes for your child in a clearly marked bag so that we can send your child’s costume back in it.
-Do not send weapons, items that can be used as a weapon, items that can be swallowed or considered dangerous.
-Please no scary costumes, masks or costumes that restrict their vision.


FYI

We will be selling Shop Riverside Discount Cards for the eighth year. They cost $15 ($10 profit per card). We are encouraging each family to purchase one as well as sell some to friends and family. This card is full of great deals- come and take a look. See Dar for more information.
