At Prospect we have nine children who have anaphylactic (life threatening) allergies to peanuts, tree nuts and sesame seeds. Special days like Halloween are examples of celebrations with friends and food.  However, since there are students in our school with life-threatening food allergies these students are especially at risk during these times. You can help to keep allergic students safe by celebrating with stickers, games or prizes instead of food. 

Therefore, for all of the families in our school, we ask that you do not send or bring any Halloween candies or other edible treats to school for children to share prior to, or after Halloween.

Halloween At Prospect

Wednesday, Oct 26 and Friday Oct. 28

Our Police Liaison Officer, Sgt. Cordell Phillips, will give presentations on Halloween safety to classes in the MPR.

Friday, Oct. 28

School Dance  5:00 – 7:30

Great Pumpkin Draw – The names of two students from each class will be drawn and they will each receive a beautiful pumpkin.

Monday, Oct. 31

Dress In Black and Orange Day – No costumes please.

Great Pumpkin Run: The Run will be similar to the Terry Fox Run. Classes will come to the gym for a warm up at 12:50. We will then move onto Adam Kerr field and walk/run until 1:25 at which time a bell will ring to announce the end of the run and children will be dismissed for recess.  

Students At School In The Morning

Our school has supervision of students on the playground from 8:25 until 8:40. Unless students are with a parent, they are expected to wait outside until the 8:35 bell rings. We also ask parents not to bring their children into the school prior to the 8:35 bell to drop off their backpacks, or to bring them into their classrooms before the bell has rung, without having made prior arrangements with the teacher. 

Lost and Found

Last call for the many items currently in our Lost and Found. These will be donated to charity on Wednesday, Oct. 19.  

Terry Fox Run

Students, parents and staff participated in the Annual Terry Fox Run on Thursday, September 29th. Everyone did a fantastic job and we were able to raise over $2000 for the Terry Fox Foundation to support cancer research.  A special thank you to Mrs. Gladwin for organizing the fund raising portion of this event.
