Book Character Day! Monday, October 31, 2016
Dear Parents:
We are excited to announce that Davidson Elementary School will have a Book Character Dress-Up Day on Monday, October 31st. On this date, students should come to school dressed up as a character from a favorite book. The character must be from a book your child has read by themselves or with an adult. Your child should be prepared to describe both the character and the book. Please fill out the attached planning sheet with your child about the simple homemade costume he or she will be wearing, the name of the character, the book in which the character is in, and a description of the character. Students are studying characterization in class and teachers are preparing lessons in character development in reading and writing. Please return the completed planning sheet to your child’s teacher on or before Monday, October 24th.
Costumes may be purchased, but you are encouraged to use items you already have at home to create your character. Just do your best to gather an assortment of hats, clothing, or other props to create a homemade costume. All costumes must be school dress appropriate. Please do not bring toy weapons. Your child should bring a copy of the book to class on October 31st for the in-class share and school parade. Parents are invited to come to the gym to view the parade. Raptor badges are not required for parents coming to only watch the parade because parents will ENTER and EXIT through the gym at the end of the parade. Parents will be provided a place in the gym to view all classes as the students parade in their book character costumes through the building. We will begin the parade at 8:40. We are looking forward to an exciting day!
