    Good Afternoon DHES Families,

    Just a quick reminder about the upcoming DHES Halloween Celebration.

    We will be celebrating Halloween on Wednesday, October 31. Students are able to come to school dressed in costume on October 31. Please remember that all costumes must be school appropriate. Students cannot wear masks, have blood as part of their costume, bring in any type of look alike weapons, or any costumes that may frighten students. If you have questions about your child’s costume, please call the office or contact your child's teacher.

    8:30-9:00am — Halloween Parade in Gym

    1:00-2:00pm — Halloween Parties in Classrooms

    **Please make sure you have completed the Volunteer Application on the DHES website or D300 website. The online Volunteer Application is new this year and every volunteer needs to complete this application. The volunteer forms that were completed last year are no longer valid as those forms were paper-based and this year the entire district is completing this electronically. Although many parents have come to the school and been signed in through the Raptor system, all visitors coming to DHES on Halloween need to complete the Volunteer Application on the DHES website as well.

    If you have questions about the online Volunteer Application, please feel free to call the school. The Volunteer Application only takes a few minutes to complete.

    Thank you for your help and support.

    Mrs. Karen Cumpata

Saturday begins with the cornerstone event: the Spirit of Christmas Parade. Other popular events include Gingerbread House Making, Festival of Trees, Santa's Petting Zoo and, Christmas tree sales by the Dundee Lions Club in Grafelman Park.
