Sign Up for Parade of Nations

IfestlogoIt’s time to sign your child up for the Parade of Nations, to be held this year on Tuesday, April 29.  Does he want to showcase your family’s culture? Does she want to wear a fun costume from a different country? Does he want to wear a baseball uniform or everyday wear to represent the USA?

Each year, almost 1/3 of the kids in our school enjoy marching in the parade in costumes of various styles.  See the papers in your child’s backpack this week for more information, or sign up at Signup Genius.
