Alphabet Parade

Importance: High


Dear Family,

On Friday, October 28th, we will have our  Annual Willow Creek Parade!  Each grade level will have a different focus and students will get to dress up.

Kindergarten will be celebrating the Alphabet!  This is a white note in your child’s binder today. Each student has picked a letter and will need to dress up for that letter.  It can be the letter itself or something that starts with that letter.  Halloween costumes are okay as long as it matches the letter your child chose and follows dress code.  Homemade outfits work as well!  Please do not feel the need to get something elaborate.  This is for the kiddos to celebrate learning their letters and sounds and have some fun!


Some examples of ideas are:

H – Hulk, Hammer

D – Dog, Darth Mal

E – Elephant, Elsa


I suggest that you send in a change of clothes in case your child becomes uncomfortable during the day or just to make sure the costume stays nice for the weekend.


If you need to make a change, just email me and I can take care of that.


Parents are welcome to come watch the parade.  It will start at 9:00.
