Dear SLAS Parents,

At SLAS, we will be hosting our annual Halloween celebration with our Early Years and Primary classes on October 31st. We invite parents to join us in celebrating Halloween, a special American holiday for students and adults alike. Halloween gives us an opportunity to be creative and dress up as our favorite super heroes, scary monsters or favorite movie character. We will award prizes for many different categories to both students and adults. Secondary students who dress up in a real costume will be rewarded with 2 hours of community service. Secondary students may also assist early years and primary years teacher to create their games to earn more community service hours. Students interested should speak with Ms. Victoria Atha to receive teacher assignment. We hope you take part in the event and dress up as well. Following the parade and announcements of winners for the costumes, we will play games and go Trick o’ Treating.
