Parade and Pep Rally

K4-5 students will prepare to show school spirit at Friday’s parade by making spirit items such as shakers or paw prints in their classrooms. The parade route will be filled with blue and gold.

5th and 6th grade students will participate in making banners to be displayed in the parade:

• All 5th and 6th grade students are given an opportunity to sign up for a date and time to help with this project.
• All banners are created on school property at various assigned locations from 3:15pm until 4:15pm.
• Students are responsible for informing parents if they are assisting with this project.
• Any parent interested in supervising should contact the appropriate grade level PTF Captain – your help would be greatly appreciated.
• Library Aides and Safety Patrols will march in the parade.


Lower School will have a Pep Rally from 9:50am – 10:20am in the Gym on Friday.

Remember, the Homecoming Parade is scheduled for Friday, October 24th at 1:50pm around Loop Road. Come enjoy the floats and banners, the band, cheerleaders, and more.
