This year, the homecoming parade theme is Las Vegas and the Gardner School will focus on everything Elvis. This Friday, if your children would like to ride the float, they must arrive at the latest by 12:45 on East Spruce Street in Walsenburg. Riders need to look for our float and parents must drop each child off with the permission slip which will be sent home on Thursday. Children are not allowed to participate if they do not have the permission slip. At the end of the parade, parents must pick up their children at the community center unless other instructions are in writing on the permission slip. Students will need to dress in the fifties style.
We are hiking to the Great Sand Dunes National Park tomorrow, September 6. Make sure you pack your children a rain jacket, a hat, sturdy walking shoes, snacks, and water. We may arrive back later than the regular pick-up and if so, we will give you a call when we have phone service to give you an ETA.
