  • Book Character Day - October 31st

    In celebration of reading, VPE will have Book Character Day on Wednesday, October 31. Students may come to school dressed as their favorite book character. Guidelines for book character day are as follows:

    • Students should bring a copy of the book their character is from to school that day.
    • Characters/costumes must be from elementary age appropriate books.  
    • Costumes may not involve blood or other horror type elements.
    • Color in the hair, face paint, and hats may be worn; however, masks will not be allowed.  
    • Costumes may not be revealing in nature … may not be see through material, low cut, or tight fitting.  Tights and leotards are acceptable if covered with tutu, skirt, or shorts.
    • Costume must allow students to take care of personal needs, sit in desks, and participate in school and classroom activities throughout the day.  Rule of thumb … if there is a question about appropriateness, it is probably best not to wear it.

    Parents are invited to come watch the students as they parade around the bus loop 10:00 a.m
