Book Parade
The Book Parade is a great way to promote reading and great books at our school!   As usual, Annette Mitchell will have the Morning Song and Pledge of Allegience at 8:37. Mrs. Mitchell will announce the start of the parade at 8:45.   David Biedrzycki will be our Grand Marshall.  Val and her team will lead the parade route. Holly Gifford will assist classes in joining the parade route.
Please have your child select a favorite book character from one of the books he/she has read.  Students will come to school dressed as the character for our special book parade through the Norris Elementary Building.  As you help your child select a book character, keep it simple!  A hat makes a great costume!  Some classes may dress as characters from a book selected by the classroom.  Check with your child's teacher if you have questions.  It is important that parents send appropriate clothing both as a costume for the book character and a change of clothes for the remainder of the day!
