October News: Week of October 24

Halloween Parade

We will be holding our annual Halloween Parade on Monday October 31st at 9:30am. Everyone is welcome to come watch the children show off their costumes. The parade will be held in our front parking lot. If you are dropping off after 9;00am please park at the side of the building or on the street.

Please send your child to school dressed in their costume. Please do not send accessories or masks –  hats are OK. If you would like us to change your child out of their costume after the parade, please send in extra clothes and make sure everything is labelled with your child’s name.

If it is raining on Monday we will not have an outdoor parade. The children will parade in the building, because of space restrictions unfortunately we are not able to have parents watch. The teachers will take plenty of pictures and post them on Brightwheel! If the parade is cancelled for any reason you will be notified via Brightwheel no later than 8:45am on Monday morning.
