Reminder: Frankland’s Halloween Costume Parade is on Monday, October 31.

Frankland’s Halloween Costume Parade is on Monday, October 31, in the school yard, starting at 1 p.m. Families are invited to line the pathway along the south side of the grounds to view the parade. We will move the parade inside if it is inclement weather and families will be invited to the gym to watch.

A few things to remember for the parade:

  • Students can get dressed right after lunch before the parade if they are not coming to school wearing a costume.
  • Wearing a costume or participating in a parade is optional.  Please communicate with your child’s teacher if you request an alternative activity
  • Another culture’s traditional clothing is not a costume.  Please consider this when choosing / creating a costume.
  • Should students want to wear masks, they can wear them during the parade as long as their vision is not compromised.
  • Anything that can be considered a weapon should stay at home.
  • Consider the weather and provide warm clothing that can be worn under a costume.
  • DJ (Disk Jedi) Sykes will provide music

*** Please provide children with a costume they can put on by themselves. We will be unable to facilitate parents / caregivers helping students get dressed ***

Volunteers needed for the Boo Bash! 

Frankland’s first Boo Bash is only two days away – this Saturday, October 29! To make the Boo Bash a success we need volunteers to help on the day! We need families to volunteer for set up/pack down, help sell tickets on the day and at the activity/food tables. Each volunteer shift is only an hour to ensure you can still enjoy the event with your families. To volunteer, please email leisaodlum@gmail.com.

Block Print your own t-shirt or canvas bag at the Boo Bash!

One of the fun arts & crafts activities that will be at the Boo Bash this year is Block Stamping. Families will have the opportunity to make their own Halloween T-shirt or Trick or Treat Bags by using block stamps (linocut stamps/blocks).

Please bring with you to the Boo Bash:

  • A clean light coloured t-shirt, doesn’t need to be new, jazz up an old shirt!
  • Cloth/canvas bags are good too (less texture will show more detail)
  • We will be using Black Textile ink (non-toxic) and linocut stamps/blocks
  • Once home, items will need to be heat set with a household iron before washing
  • If you accidentally forget to bring a t-shirt/canvas bag, then families can make their own cards/posters as an alternative.

The Block Stamping activity is kindly being provided by Amy Bond (Frankland Parent).
