Seeking Volunteers!
There will be lots of fun to be had at the second annual event. To help make it an event to remember, we’re looking for some helping hands. Are you a whiz at planning? Would you be able to help during the event passing out pizza or drinks? Would you be able to take a shift at a craft table? It takes a lot to have a fun and safe event, so please consider volunteering to help make this event a success.
Please sign up through this link (http://bit.ly/q300costume19) if you’re able to offer a helping hand!

Financial Assistance for Families
In the spirit of our core value of inclusion, we offer funding for our students and families that wish to attend but are experiencing financial hardship and cannot pay the entrance. Please email Rachel Weiss at rachel[at]q300.org if you have any questions about this. All information remains confidential.

Teal Pumpkin Project
TealPumpkinProject2019PosterThe Costume Party Planning Committee have decided to incorporate more awareness on food allergies during this year’s Costume Party. Many of our children have food allergies, some of which are life threatening, and more awareness around these issues can only serve to make our community an inclusive space. This year’s costume party will adopt some aspects of the Teal Pumpkin Project (http://tealpumpkinproject.org/), whose goal is to “[raise] awareness of food allergies through the addition of non-food trinkets and toys to your treats, making Halloween safer and more inclusive for all trick or treaters.” Though we have never given food treats as game awards in the Costume Party, this year we will actively provide our children with information why we give non-food trinkets and toys in place of food treats.
