The parade route this year will be out the back door by the Kindergarten Entrance with Kindergarten leading the way followed by 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades. 7th and 8th may participate if they choose. Students will need to get into their costumes before the parade and out of them at parade's end. The parade route will be out the backdoors by Kindergarten, towards the boys' soccer field, up the dirt road towards Country Village, around the Country Village parking lot and building, and back to the school entering the elementary doors by the 1st and 2nd-grade classrooms. Parents and families are allowed this year and should line up on the sidewalk behind the elementary drop-off area and along the dirt road. If rain is scheduled in the forecast, we will do a modified Halloween Parade within the school at 8:15 am.

Ms Knowlton wanted to share some exciting news; the LES artists will be partnering with Shippee Eye Care in Lancaster this year to share their artwork with the community.

These are the third grade's abstract autumn birch tree paintings; I hope you enjoy them :)
