Fall Festival - Friday, October 27
As the Fall Festival planning has started, we would like to remind everyone that latex products such as latex balloons and latex masks are prohibited in Quaker Valley Schools.
Fall Festival is an active afternoon during which students participate in a costume parade and classroom parties organized by the PTA. The kindergarten parade will begin at 1:00 p.m. More information will be provided to parents by the kindergarten teachers.
For students in grades one through five, the parade will begin at 2:30 p.m. The parade will form in the gym and then proceed outside to circle the playground. Those who wish to view the parade should stand inside the playground area. If it is a cold day, please dress your child with warm clothes under his/her costume. If it is raining, the parade route will be inside the school and viewers will sit on the bleachers in the gym.
Students should bring their costumes to school in a bag or carrying case. We know that some costumes may be too large for students to take on the bus. If you need to deliver an outfit, please bring it to the office by 1:30 p.m.
Please plan costumes that students can put on by themselves. Sometimes our primary students may need help with their outfits. Teachers and volunteers will be available to assist students. Parents may come to the Edgeworth playground area at 2:30 p.m. to view the parade.
We encourage students and parents to select appropriate fall festival outfits. Costumes may not include any look-a-like or pretend weapons such as guns, knives, swords, hatchets, etc. If your child’s costume includes a mask, please be sure that he/she can see clearly.
We look forward to a good time for students, staff, and parents!

Teachers are not responsible for rescheduling in person parent conferences outside of the selected district dates and times. Families who cannot attend on the designated parent teacher conference dates should schedule a phone conference to be conducted on one of the predetermined dates or email the teacher to request a written conference summary.
The students have been anxiously awaiting the opening of this year’s 5th grade spirit shop!
