Volunteers- are essential for this event to be planned and carried out.  A sign-up sheet will be provided this week for shifts during the Halloween party.  Please consider signing up for a shift. Any one interested in helping prior to the event, please email Nicole at


This has become one of our biggest events of the year!  You don't want to miss out.  This is a great activity to come have some fun, eat some great food and get to know more of our Lochside families!!  Costumes are encouraged!!!!!!!!!




One of the most popular events at the Halloween party is our annual Cupcake Walk.  We encourage families to bake 2 dozen regular sized cupcakes, which are used to give away during our Cupcake Walk.  Some families have made it a tradition to bake and decorate their Halloween themed cupcakes!  It is always fun to see how creative everyone can be!!!!

We ask that the cupcakes are dropped off the morning of the Halloween party (October 19th) on the stage where they will be organized for the evening.  Please label all trays and/or containers.

Thank you!!

If you have told a teacher that you will be class rep but have not added your name to the sign up genius, please follow the link to do so.
