Halloween At Pilgrim Wood P.S.

Halloween at Pilgrim Wood Public School

We would like to invite our community to celebrate Halloween on Wednesday, October 31st.  Students in Kindergarten to Grade 3 will have the opportunity to wear their Halloween costumes to school that day.  Please send your son/daughter to school already dressed in their costume (with their clothes underneath for easy changing). We will be taking our costumes off at first break before we go outside and eat.

We ask that students not bring accessories to their costume (e.g. swords, brooms, helmets, etc.) as these present a safety risk.  We welcome students to wear make-up on their faces, but ask that masks be left at home. For those who do not wish to wear a costume but would still like to participate, Black and Orange are the best colours to wear that day.  We look forward to seeing all the creative costumes on Halloween.  Please do not send any food or candy.

Students’ who wish not to participate, will have an alternative activity in the library during that time.

Because our numbers are very large this year, for safety reasons, we ask those families of students in Kindergarten to Grade 3 who wish to attend the parade to limit two (2) members per family.  When parents arrive we ask you to go to the gym directly and line up against the walls. All FDK-Gr3 students will parade through the gym.

Dear Pilgrim Wood Families:

Traditionally at Pilgrim Wood we support the Terry Fox Foundation to help in Cancer Research.  Our Terry Fox Run is scheduled for Friday, September 28th with a rain date of Monday, October 1st.  Your children having been learning about Terry and his legacy in class and today they had an assembly with a representative from the Terry Fox Foundation.

Our Pilgrim Wood goal for this year is $1500.00.  We need your help!  As of 2:00 today, we were only at $340.

In order to meet our goal we are hoping you will consider contributing to this worthy cause and be a part of this mission to STOP CANCER.  We are asking you to consider contributing in at least one of three ways: 

  1. Terry Fox official website dedicated to Pilgrim Wood P. S.  This way you can officially donate and get a tax receipt.  (Please copy and paste)
  2. Collect toonie donations for the Terry Fox run in the classroom.  So far we have collected $160.00 by this method. 
  3. There will be a big jar for Terry Fox at the School BBQ on Thursday, Sept 27th.   

Your financial contributions for helping our Pilgrim Wood Community to reach our goal of $1500. is very much needed and appreciated.  We want to help continue Terry's dream that he started with his Marathon of Hope to support Cancer Research!
