Dear Parents and Staff, We are so excited to be able to celebrate our Kindergartners tomorrow with a parade! We just wanted to send out a few details, so you will know where to meet, what time and what to expect. The Kindergarten parents will meet and line up at Welcome Hill Church on Story Road right down from the school. The church parking lot gate will open at 10:30; however, the parade will leave to come to the school at 11:00, so you will not need to get to the church until 10:45 or so. We ask that no one get out of their cars and you practice social distancing. We know it is so hard after not seeing each other for so long, but we ask that you please abide by this, because want to comply with the rules. Air hugs through your windows are acceptable. Lol! Parents, we hope you will decorate your car with window paint, balloons and/or posters to make it a fun and festive parade for your child. Parents, once you leave the church at 11:00 you will proceed to the school, come down the school driveway, circle the parking lot and then you may exit the driveway and come back around a second time if you wish. Staff, we will gather at the school at 10:30 (you may get there earlier if you choose) to place all of our cars on the outer circle of our driveway and parking lot before the Kindergartners begin to come through. You too, may decorate your car and make posters. Bring your air horns, megaphones, or any other noise makers you would like to bring. If you have a truck or SUV you may want to park so you can sit in the back of it. If not, bring a chair to sit next to your car. Again, we need to social distance from one another. Air hugs are acceptable. We want this to be a time of celebration so the more decorations and noise makers the better! We are looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!
