Our Halloween Parade Day proved to be a success! The little ones came to school dressed in costume, crafts were made throughout the morning, stories of the origin of Halloween were read, and parents even brought in special Halloween treats for the children to enjoy after their lunch.
The best part of the day, of course, was the parade! Each year the students and teachers of Glen Park Montessori walk down Chenery Street holding hands with a buddy while parents watch closely with their cameras in hand! Instead of receiving “treats”, the children pass out gifts to the local merchants. This allows the children to experience the gift of giving instead of just receiving on this holiday. It is also an opportunity to meet our neighbors and show off our adorable Halloween costumes… thank you all for participating!
