Halloween Parade Changes

Quest Families,

 Happy Halloween! We are planning on having a modified version of our annual Halloween parade on Friday, October 30th. Because the parade will start at 9:00am, we ask that students come to school already dressed in their costumes. There will be a virtual option and an on-campus option for parents and relatives to watch our on-campus elementary kiddos parade in their costumes. To watch our parade from home, parents will be sent a link to a YouTube live streaming session. Students will be recorded as they pass by the office, one class at a time, and you’ll be able to see them in all their Halloween splendor! For those who would like to attend the parade for their on-campus children, they should bring camping chairs or blankets and set them up along the outside of either building (see attached map—the yellow dots indicate where families can sit). Everyone watching the parade on campus needs to be wearing a mask and should position themselves as close to the building as possible to allow our students to parade on the sidewalks surrounding the schools. Families should also allow six feet between them and neighboring families. Although individual teachers may choose to have other Halloween festivities throughout the day, we will not be asking for parent volunteers this year. Also, afternoon kindergarten families will receive information from their child’s teacher regarding their parade.

 E-learner students are welcome to dress up as well. Their teachers will let them know when they can show off their costumes from home via Zoom/Google Meet. So that the ENTIRE school can see our e-learners in their costumes, we ask parents to take pictures of their children and send them to Angelee Spader (aspader@questac.org) no later than Thursday, Oct. 29th. We will make a video compilation of these pictures and share it with all our students.

 Costume guidelines:

 Please note that costumes should be modest and without blood or gore. Also, face coverings must also be worn throughout the entire day. Students are welcome to paint their faces and wear Halloween masks; however, those masks will only be worn when directed to do so by the classroom teacher (e.g. during the parade, when a class picture is taken, etc). Weapons and anything that depicts violence are not allowed on school property (knives, guns, swords, spears, etc.). If you have questions about costume accessories, please contact us. Just to reiterate, no blood, either depicted on the costume or in makeup, is allowed. 

We are excited to continue this tradition at Quest! We hope these precautions will allow us to celebrate in a fun, memorable way!

Character Development-New Class @ Quest!

We have started implementing a “new” class to help kids develop their character and attitudes. As your kiddo about this 😉

TAKING IT HOME: In your weekly communication to home, please include the following note: Our class talked about using proactive “can do” language this week. Ask your child, “What does proactive language sound like?” or “What is an example of proactive language?”

Free Breakfast

Quest Families,

We are excited to start offering breakfast this upcoming Monday! Breakfast, just like lunch, will be free to ALL students. Please note that these meals will be free until June! Though we originally thought this offer would end in December, this waiver from the government has been extended!

To start, breakfasts will be simple and more of a grab-and-go option provided in the Q1 lunchroom. A sample breakfast might include a muffin, a fruit, and milk. Jr. high students are welcome to enter the Q1 building through the front doors as early as 7:45am. By 8:00am, they should be heading back to Q2. Elementary students may enter Q1 at 8:00am. At 8:20am, elementary students will go outside to meet their teachers.

Please note that half-day kindergartners and e-learner kindergarteners are welcome to take advantage of these meals as well. These parents may contact Madeline Chestnut (mchestnut@questac.org) if they are interested or if they have any questions.
