We will have a Halloween Parade at 11:15am , rain or shine. Weather permitting, students will be walking around the school with their class. Parents and family are welcome to come to watch the parade! As a reminder, NO PETS are allowed on school grounds. If the weather is wet, we will parade in the gym and hallways.
