Virtual Halloween Parade

We'll be hosting a Halloween Parade this year….virtually! We can’t wait to see those costumes in action!!!

If you would like to include your child in the Halloween Parade, which will be shared with the school and on our Facebook and Instagram pages, follow these steps:

  1. Record your video in landscape mode (phone turned sideways)

  2. Have your child walk from the left of the screen to the right ensuring that your keiki shows off their best costume (this way all the children are walking in the same direction, just like a real parade!)

  3. Videos should be no longer than 6 seconds

  4. Please keep costumes and backgrounds appropriate for school. (tip: If you are concerned with your child being on social media, have your child wear a costume that has a mask)

  5. Upload your video using the link below by **Wednesday, October 27th at 2:00 pm**

**All halloween parade submissions will be entered for a chance to win prizes.**
