Introducing the Storybook Character Parade at Northland Elementary

Storybook Character Parade

Northland Elementary will have a Storybook Character Parade on Friday, October 20th at 8:30am in the Elementary gym. Students are encouraged to dress up as their favorite story book characters. Each class will walk in the parade. Students may choose any character from a book they enjoy, following the guidelines below. To support students’ feelings of safety and security in our building, violent or frightening costumes are not acceptable. No weapons or dangerous-looking items will be permitted to accompany a costume. Here are some examples of acceptable costume choices, as well as unacceptable choices. 

Acceptable Examples 

  •  Fancy Nancy
  •  Cinderella, Snow White, etc. 
  •  Greg Heffley (the Wimpy Kid) 
  •  Ramona characters 
  •  Superman, Spiderman, etc. 
  •  Ms. Frizzle
  •  Olivia
  •  Junie B. Jones 
  •  Nate the Great 
  •  Geronimo Stilton 
  •  Harry Potter, Hermione, Ron, etc. 

Unacceptable Examples 

  •  Characters from Goosebumps
  •  Vampires
  •  Grim Reaper 
  •  Characters with guns or weapons 
  •  Ghosts
  •  Horror movie characters
  •  Captain Underpants

Please come to school dressed in costume. Your child could either wear their spirit clothes under their costume, or bring their spirit clothes in a bag and change after the parade. Students do need to change into Friday spirit clothes after the parade. Do remember, there is a 4th grade spirit game that day! Please have your child bring a copy of the book starring their character. They will carry this during the parade. Please do not feel the need to spend money on a special costume. Be creative and make your own! Of course, partcipation in the parade is voluntary, and if your child decides not to participate, they should wear regular spirit clothes on that Friday. 

Thank you for making our First Annual Storybook Character Parade a huge success!
