All Saints' Day Party and Parade - STA celebrates All Saints’ Day on Tuesday, November 1st with an All Saints’ parade and party. K-4 students are encouraged to dress up as their favorite saint or biblical person. Costumes can be anything from DYI to a purchased item at retail outlets like the Rosary Book and Gift Shoppe. Please be sure your child can fit the costume over their uniform as children will be changing in the classroom.
At 2:00, the classes will meet in the hallway and start the Saints’ Parade. The parade will begin in the elementary wing by the front office, then move into the gym where parents and other guests can view our STA Saints. Following the parade we will go back to our classroom for the party around 2:15. At 2:45 we will clean up to go home at 3:00 p.m.
Please note that we still need some volunteers in a few classrooms and to head this special event.
