Sussex Avenue HSA Weekly Bulletin:
October 29-November 2

Monday will be an "F" day
A note from our Co-Presidents

We have a fun week ahead of us! First, it is spirit week at Sussex this week - Monday is Wear Fall Colors day! The other themed days are listed below.  

Also, Wednesday is our Annual Halloween Parade! As a reminder, the parade will start at 9:15am in front of the school. The students will parade around the front drive and then participate in some games outside. Parking will be tight in both parking lots and on the street so plan to arrive early. Once the outdoor festivities end the student will return to their classrooms and only room parents will be allowed inside the building due to crowd control and safety reasons. 

Our Book Fair is fast approaching and we are looking for volunteers to help set up/break down as well as assist students throughout the week. Please sign up for a time slot using the link provided below. This is one of the HSA's bigger fundraisers so any help you can provide is very much appreciated! 

Have a great week!

Kathleen Kalaher Humbert and Kristin Deleppo
