Hoagland Days Parade

Yes, we are having a float this year in the parade. We will be discussing it at our May 15th meeting. We need to get as many details worked out as possible by then. I want faculty, staff and school families to walk with us wearing school shirts. The trailer is taken care of as of now. We decided to hand out school postcard, pencil, candy and wristband with "SJE" on it. Please be thinking about that and advertise in your newsletters that we want families to walk. I will do the same.
