District 62 Costume Reminder

Costume guidelines:

  • Face makeup is okay as long as it isn’t too scary (students must be identifiable).
  • Half masks such as masquerade masks are okay unless otherwise stated by your child’s school. No full face masks are permitted.
  • Friendly clowns, jesters, mimes etc. are okay. No scary clowns please.
  • No imitation weapons of any kind will be permitted.

These guidelines are in place so that students can be easily identified. Please use your discretion when sending your child to school in costume.

Principals and Vice-Principals may ask your child to change in the event a costume is deemed unacceptable.

We do our best to create comfortable and safe environments in our schools and we thank you for helping us to do so.


Fine Arts

The Fine Arts Department would like to recognize the passion and dedication that our art students put into their work.  Jennifer L. and Elliott M. are two of these outstanding students.

Jennifer created a charcoal portrait of a very expressive child.  She had never worked with charcoal before and said she found this project to be a fun experience.  She also confessed that upon starting the project, she thought it was going to turn out “really ugly” so she was very cautious with every mark she made.  In the end, she was pleasantly surprised and happy with the results, yet still critical in a constructive way to always keep improving.  Jennifer heard two teachers had teared up when they saw her work – she found it “cool” that her work had touched others in such a way.

Jennifer L.

Elliott created a very majestic charcoal drawing of an eagle.  He had already had some experience working with charcoal and so said he felt quite confident starting this project.  He chose to represent an eagle for his subject matter because they are on of his favourite animals.  Elliott said he was happy with the results as this was on of his stronger pieces working with charcoal.
