Halloween at Home
The Brockton Public Schools joins Mayor Robert F. Sullivan and the City of Brockton in strongly advising Brockton families to skip traditional trick-or-treating activities this year. We’ve compiled a variety of safe and fun-filled activities you can do right at home to give your child an unforgettable Halloween.
Some of our favorite ideas include:
- Host a virtual costume party and/or contest on ZOOM or another free video conferencing platform for your child's friends and family.
- Carve or decorate pumpkins. You can purchase pumpkins and a decorating kit at your local supermarket.
- Have a Halloween movie marathon. Many streaming platforms feature a list of family-friendly Halloween movies and many TV channels will also be broadcasting Halloween hits.
- Read Halloween books. Your child has access to a variety of Halloween-themed books on their Reach for Reading account! They can log in to Reach for Reading through Clever (the program they use to access remote learning each day).
- “Ghost” your friends and family. Work with other families to exchange goodie bags that are accompanied by a message that says, “You’ve been booed!” Leave the goodie bags on each other’s doorsteps.
