Dear Lower Lab Families,

 

On Friday, October 27th, we will commence with our Tenth Annual Storybook Character Day. Weather permitting, we enjoy a parade as part of our celebration. We will visit all the classrooms celebrate literacy and words. Students are invited to dress as their favorite character from a book and students must also bring the book to school to present to their classmates.  Students can also dress as a much-admired vocabulary word. For example, if your son or daughter would like to dress as the word parallel, you could take two longer rectangular pieces of construction paper. Punch holes at the top. Loop together and hang around your neck. Write the word “parallel” on each strip. Extending on our celebration in this way allows us to learn new words and open up the experience for additional students to participate.

 

Storybook character day is about the celebration of literacy and the love of words during the school day. Treats, pumpkins and other celebratory items are reserved for the PTA sponsored Halloween Party.

        

Because of religious and personal reasons, many students may choose not to dress up. Those who do not wish to wear a costume may bring a book and talk about their favorite character or select a word they really love to share with the class.

 

Please refrain from including swords, knives or other weapons as part of the costume.  Additionally, for safety reasons, masks cannot be worn to school.

 

We are hoping the weather holds up. Due to a packed schedule in November, if there is inclement weather such as rain or snow, the children will celebrate within the classrooms and the parade will not be rescheduled.

 

The parade will begin at 9:00 am and conclude at 10:00 am. Kindergarten children start the parade and grades 1-5 follow accordingly.  If you wish to view your child walk in the parade, please stay behind the gates on 95th Street between Third and Lexington Avenues until you are directed to enter.  We are looking forward to another exciting and successful Storybook Character Day!

 

Sincerely,

Sandy Miller & Denise Pérez
