Storybook Character Day
On Friday, October 31, Parklawn will continue the celebration of Storybook Character Day. Students and staff members are encouraged to wear a costume displaying their favorite storybook character. This year we will be expanding on the tradition by adding a Character Parade. Students will walk through the hallways, allowing all everyone to see their costumes. Weather permitting, we will take a brief walk outside, allowing any interested parents to view the parade. The parade is set to begin at 9:10am and parents will be directed to the field on the Lincolnia Rd side of the building. To allow space for students to view the parade and to have room to walk, we will not be allowing parents to watch from inside the building. The instructional day will commence immediately following the parade, so post-parade classroom visit requests will not be honored. The current forecast for Friday is 63 degrees and no rain. In the event of inclement weather, the parade will be held, but we will not include the outdoor loop. An announcement will be made as soon as possible if this situation were to arise.
Two Hour Early Release
Friday, October 31 will also be an early release day for all students. Dismissal will take place at 1:20pm and the front office will close at 3:00pm.
November 3 and 4
There will be no school on Monday and Tuesday, November 3 and 4. Teachers will be holding parent-teacher conferences on these days, reflecting on student progress during the first quarter of the year. If you have not already, please contact your child's teacher to schedule your conference time.
