The Welby Way Halloween Parade will be on Wednesday at 8:15 a.m.  Immediately after the parade we will have a healthy brunch in the classroom.  Students are asked to wear their costume to school and have a change of clothes to wear after the parade or brunch.  We will have a “regular” school day from recess until 2:30.  This year, WW does not have a shortened day on October 31. 

The class chose fruit, cheese and bagels for the brunch.  Students offered different items that they would donate to our brunch.  I emailed the list to you on Friday.
