Carved and ready!

Are your pumpkins carved and ready for the big day?

photoOur Head Start friends never let a rainy day get them down.  During recess, they took the opportunity to clean out pumpkins, count and clean seeds, and carve (with assistance) photo 02some funny faces to share.  The room was abuzz with excitement and orange goo! 🙂

Other classrooms and our own Nurse Sullivan talked about Halloween safety in anticipation of several events tomorrow.  Here are a few important tips to remember (based on advise from our learners):

  • Never trick-or-treat alone; go in groups and with a trusted adult.
  • Use reflective tape on costumes and treat bags to help drivers see you.
  • Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them.
  • Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see others and others to see you.
  • Wear well-fitting costumes, masks, and shoes to avoid blocked vision and possible falls.
  • Only visit well-lit homes.

Autumn holidays like Halloween are fun times for everyone involved.  Most importantly, be safe out there as you get those pumpkins carved and ready!
