On Wednesday, October 31st we will have our annual Halloween Parade at South School! Our parade will begin at 9:00 a.m. Students will exit the doors near the playground, walk around on Randolph and Madison and finish the parade on Linden. As safety is our biggest concern, we ask that costumes do not include any weapons or masks that could impact the ability to see. In case of rain, our parade will be held in the gym. An email will be sent with specific details.
DROP EVERYTHING AND READ
Parents or special adults are invited to Drop Everything And Read (DEAR) with their children on Wednesday, November 7th at 8:55 or 2:35.
