Character Parade is Coming!

This year, PGE will host a school-wide Storybook Character Parade on Friday, October 26th, at 8:30am.  Students are encouraged to dress up as their favorite story book characters.  Each class will walk in the parade, and parents are welcome to attend.  Students may choose any character from a book they enjoy, following the guidelines in this letter.  To support students’ feelings of safety and security in our building, violent or frightening costumes are not acceptable.  No weapons or dangerous-looking items will be permitted to accompany a costume.  Here are some examples of acceptable costume choices, and some examples of unacceptable choices.

The parade will take place on the hardtop on the playground.  Parents are welcome to stand around the hard top to take pictures – you will not need to sign in through the front desk for this event, unless you plan to sign your child out from school after the parade.  PM PreK/PPCD students will have a smaller parade in the afternoon.  Please talk with your child about how he or she would like to participate in this event, and mark your calendars!  See your child’s teacher for further information.
