Storybook Character Day-Plan Now

Get Ready Parents! We have our PBIS Awards day coming up on October 29th. This event will be for those students who earn enough PBIS points to wear their favorite Storybook Character Costume. We wanted to give everyone enough time to plan ahead. Students will be permitted to wear appropriate costumes that match a character from a book. Students will have to wear their regular face masks to school. They are not permitted to wear a full mask that covers the whole face, or have any type of weapon-even fake ones, or anything gruesome or scary. So… go find that great character and start planning!
