School Assemblies

Each month Pittsfield Elementary School and Pittsfield Middle High School have monthly assemblies to promote school programs, recognize individual, group, and school-wide accomplishments, and to foster school pride. Elementary school assemblies are the third Wednesday of each month at 8:15 a.m. in the school gymnasium. Grade levels rotate through hosting the assemblies. This month the sixth grade will host the assembly. At Pittsfield Middle High School our assemblies are the third Friday of each month at 12:25 p.m. in the school gymnasium. This year our IMPACT Team will be hosting the monthly assembly series. Families and community members are always welcome to attend. All you have to do is sign in at the main office and get a visitor’s badge.

Halloween Parade

Our annual Pittsfield Elementary School Halloween Parade will be held on Friday, October 27. Students in grades K-6 may walk in the parade. This year, the parade will take place at the elementary school. We are excited that this change will allow all of our students to parade together! Students will walk the front and side loops with their grade level at approximately 1:30 p.m. Families are welcome to join us at the school for the parade. Families may line the sidewalk or infield area between the front loop to watch the parade and take pictures.

If your child is participating in the parade, he/she may bring a costume to school and change into it after lunch.  Please do not send in any scary or inappropriate costumes.  Toy guns, knives, or other weapons that go with costumes are not allowed at school. Also, gory costumes, artificial blood, etc. are not appropriate for this event. Students may wear hair coloring as part of the costume during the school day. However, face paint or make-up may not be worn to school. Face paint or make-up may be applied immediately before the parade. (more…)
