Nevada Day/Halloween Costume Parade & Celebrations

LWJES will celebrate Nevada Day and Halloween on Thursday, October 27, 2022. There will be no school on Friday, October 28, 2022, in observance of Nevada Day.

Students are invited to wear costumes to school on Thursday, October 27, 2022. Please observe the following:

  • We encourage students to come in their costumes, if they choose to wear them, for the day. We will not be able to allow students to change into costumes in the afternoon.
  • Costume-related masks may only be worn during the parade.
  • Make-up is discouraged for this day. If worn, make-up is not to be touched-up or applied at school. Students who wear make-up to school should use care to keep their make-up neat and avoid getting make-up on school surfaces or their clothes.
  • Fake weapons are not allowed.

We will have a Nevada Day/Halloween costume parade on October 27, 2022, at 1:45 p.m. We are welcoming families to join us for this event. We will open the gate at the parking lot/field area (Battista Gate) and the gate by the basketball courts on Bermuda at 1:35 p.m. All visitors are to enter at a gate and then head to an identified fence to spread out to watch the parade. After the parade, we request families depart campus as quickly as possible so gates can be secured. Classes will return to their rooms after the parade and enjoy a Nevada Day/Halloween celebration. Celebrations are reserved for students only.

Please, no school-age children are to attend the event (middle school and high school students). Families who bring non-school-age children, please consider the length of the event and your child’s needs. We expect any younger siblings to demonstrate appropriate school behavior, and we ask parents/guardians to closely supervise younger siblings at all times. Please refrain from allowing younger siblings to play on the playground as this event is focused on our students. We appreciate you picking up students following the usual dismissal routine this day.

Please refer to additional information from your child’s teacher about this celebration. Family members will not be allowed to join the classroom celebrations as they are for students only.

Students will have a party on Thursday, October 27, 2022. Teachers will send specific information separately regarding their classroom party. Classroom parties are reserved for students only.

We ask that students do not wear their costumes to school on Monday, October 31, 2022.

LWJES Family Picnic – 10/21/2022

The entry gate for families to join the event will be through the gate on the main field by the Battista auxiliary parking lot or through the gate on Mardon by the 4-square courts.

The entire time will be set aside for dining. Students will have a recess at a different time. We request that there is no play or games during the picnic period.
