We do not celebrate Halloween at school with costumes, make-up, or hair styles. This portion of the holiday is something to be celebrated at home. We had multiple days for costumes with last week’s Red Ribbon Week celebration to give our students the opportunity to be creative and full of school spirit. The Halloween information was shared with all students during morning announcements. We also ask your assistance with regulating the amount of candy that comes to school with students next week. Two or three small pieces are a good amount. Large amounts of candy or bags of candy will be held for parent pick-up.
Saturday night is the time to set your clocks back one hour as we end Daylight Savings Time.
Thanks to the support of our wonderful PFO, all Sunrise students will experience the Crocker Art Gallery’s ART ARK! The ART ARK, a mobile art museum, will be on the Sunrise campus from Monday, October 20th through Tuesday, November 4th. Every classroom, regardless of track, will visit the ark for a one hour art lesson from a Crocker docent. The theme of the ART ARK is Form & Function: African and Asmat Art. The ARK contains a dynamic exhibition of sculpture, musical instruments, textiles, masks, and other objects from Africa and New Guinea. The ARK will be parked on our playground right behind the library/computer lab. As students arrive at school in the morning to line up on their red dots, they will need to walk in front of the trailer.
Parents – a special evening has been planned for families. On Thursday, October 23rd, the ART ARK will be open between the hours of 6:00-7:30PM for families to visit the ARK.
Come and enjoy!
