October 2016 Parent Information

October31, 2016 in the Church Sanctuary at 9:00 a.m.

The parade will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. so please be punctual.
Children will march with the class where they begin their day on Monday morning. Children, who attend afternoon Kindergarten Prep or children who do not attend PECC on Monday, may participate in the parade.

Parents of children who do not attend on our parade day must walk in the parade with their children. Children enrolled in afternoon Kindergarten Prep classes will return at their normal class time for their Halloween parties.

Parents of children attending on Monday mornings: drop off your child at his/her classroom and proceed to the sanctuary.

Parents of children who do not attend PECC on Monday mornings: meet in the church Hospitality Area.

The parade order will be:
Kindergarten Prep classes: Ms. Janet’s class, Ms. Becky’s class, Ms. Emily’s class PDO III PDO II/Preschool Prep PDO I PECC children (attending another day or Kindergarten Prep PM) and their parents.

We will make two trips around the sanctuary before the children head back to their classroom. Parents will be responsible for children who do not wish to participate in the parade or for those little cuties who want to be in the parade but do not attend on Monday mornings. For the safety of the children and to keep each class together, please do not stop the parade and ask your child(ren) to pose for pictures.

After the parade:
Parents should go to the classroom to remove your child’s costume and take it home with you.

For safety reasons and because our little ones in PDO I and PDO II/Preschool Prep can become frightened, masks or weapons should be kept home and not brought to PECC for the parade (they will be given to the parent upon arrival if a child arrives with a mask or weapon to carry). A great alternative for a mask is to use face paint.

Halloween parties will occur during snack time/music time on Halloween Day. Look for the party sign-up sheet outside each classroom door.

You are welcome to wear a costume and enjoy spookily fun with PECC!


We are almost ready to begin sending Contagious Notices, newsletters, information and reminders about upcoming special events, etc. through mass emails.  We hope this will not only help our environment but will prepare parents for their child entering area elementary schools.  Please let us now when your email address changes.

The center’s email address will be pecc@prairiebaptist.org.


Our Big Room will be used for voting on Tuesday, November 8.  Because of the large numbers of expected voters, congestion in our hallways and political unrest, PECC will be closed on Election Day.
