This year we will be celebrating Character Round-Up Day on Friday October 30, 2015!
Students are encouraged to dress up as a book character hero/heroine who exemplifies positive social-emotional characteristics. Students may dress in costume and are encouraged to bring the book that inspired their character. We encourage making costumes with any available materials you have on hand. **Dressing in costume is not required.
Please note that students must follow the AISD dress code:
- Students shall be dressed and groomed in a manner that is clean and neat and that will not be a health or safety hazard to themselves or others. The District prohibits any clothing or grooming that in the principal’s judgment may reasonably be expected to cause disruption of, or interference with, normal school operations.
- The District prohibits pictures, emblems, or writings on clothing that:
- Are lewd, offensive, vulgar, or obscene.
- Advertise or depict tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, drugs, or any other substance prohibited under FNCF(LEGAL).
- No violent, bloody, or scary costumes. No masks, items that could be used as weapons, or scary make-up.
Potential costumes may come from books such as these:
- Pete the Cat by James Dean
- The Crayon Box that Talked by Shane DeRolf
- Eggbert The Slightly Cracked Egg by Tom Ross & Rex Barron
- Percy Jackson by Rick Riordian
- Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
- Clementine by Sara Pennypacker
- How Full is Your Bucket for Kids by Tom Rath & Mary Reckmeyer
- Elmer (the Patchwork Elephant) by David McKee
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Robin English, Counselor, 512-414-7153, email@example.com
We are excited for this opportunity to celebrate positive character traits and our favorite books. REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR CHARACTER’S BOOK! Students are welcome to check a book out from the library for this day.

2) Playground maintenance – 3 playgrounds (leaf raking, mulch redistribution, leveling, sweeping, re-fluffing the GaGa Pit mulch etc.)
3) Mulch distribution around shrub + plant beds
4) Removal / replacement of 4 inches of gravelly soil over a 200 sq. ft area and replacement with good quality topsoil.
7) Shrub removal in back playground
There’s always coffee, muffins, donuts, water and access to restrooms.
There’s sometimes breakfast tacos. There’s not really ever any steak & eggs – but we sure wish there were. Please email me if you can volunteer or if you need any further/additional information. firstname.lastname@example.org
