The ILES Halloween parties were a sweet success, despite many differences this year!
There was no parade, nor any parents to run the parties, so teachers and educational assistants stepped up!! They offered games, crafts, pumpkin painting, movies and more! One class performed a Halloween Readers Theatre, while another held a socially distanced dance party.
Special thanks to all the parents who did send in supplies and packaged snacks! In addition, we'd again like to give a huge Halloween Shout Out to our local businesses that donated treats and fun items for the kids. Every single student got to take home one of the large orange goodie bags filled with gifts from our awesome community!

The pandemic has forced Indian Lake Elementary School to cancel the annual ILES Halloween Parade. However, you can't stop that spooky Laker spirit!! 
Dozens of local businesses, that normally send representatives in costume to pass out goodies at the parade in the ILES gym, instead donated all kinds of fun items for the students to enjoy. Businesses brought in boxes of candy, coloring books, slime, flashlights and more! ILHS Key Club members bagged up the items recently. Each student will receive a well-stocked goodie bag at the Halloween parties on Friday. 
ILES Co-Principal Molly Hall says, "We are overwhelmed by the support from our local businesses! We're so thankful that they still wanted to participate in our Halloween activities, even though we could not hold the parade." 
Covid-19 restrictions limit visitors to Indian Lake School buildings to essential personnel only. That means parents are not able to attend this year's classroom Halloween parties, but Hall says teachers are planning games, crafts, packaged snacks and fun. 
Students in grades 1-4 may bring costumes to school that they can put on themselves over their regular clothes. Parties will take place Friday in the afternoon before the conclusion of school.
