Storybook Parade Information

Our Storybook Parade is Friday, October 11th. Children are encouraged to dress up as a favorite storybook character. Your child should bring the book that includes the character he/she is portraying. No ghosts, witches, or goblins please. Students will parade through the gym with their classes beginning at 8:30 a.m. In an effort to keep children safe in our hallways and on our parade route, we ask that parents be seated in the gym by 8:25 a.m. For your convenience, please enter the building in the back through the gym doors. Parade guests will not be allowed in the hallways until the parade is over. When the parade has ended, you will be allowed to check your child out from their classroom. If you are not planning to check out your child for the day, please exit the building through the back doors. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you!
