Costume Ideas


    You don’t have to spend tons of cash to have a great costume. Check in your own closet or your parents’. Craft, fabric and consignment shops have lots of great supplies that don’t cost a lot.  Be sure to ask your parent’s permission when making your costume.  Students with Character Cards will be awarded extra points for props and costumes.  Check the bottom of your Character Card for suggested props.  Remember, do not bring toy guns to school.

    Check out our Photo Gallery to see a few examples of student costumes.
