Dear Families,

This year we will expand on a current tradition here at Ben Hem. On October 31st we invite all of our Bobcats to dress in costume in the afternoon for a Whole School Spirit Parade.  This parade will be led by our Kindergarten students and each grade will follow in order (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th). The festivities begin at 1:45 pm and exit out the side door near the large playground. Classes will then walk the fire lane around the back of the building and re-enter the school at the East Evergreen side door near the PreK playground. Parents are cordially invited to ​join us outside to ​watch our parade​​ (and dress in costume if they wish). You can find a spot anywhere along the perimeter of the fire lane along the back of the building.

We do ask that pretend weapons stay at home. Also, please consider our young Bobcats and let's not scare them.

We hope you can join us in our first Whole School Spirit Parade. It should be great fun.  


Karen and Ben

PS: If the weather isn't cooperating we will have to make a new plan. But, we are optimistic it will not be needed.
