Tulip Festival Float:

If anyone is interested and willing to help with school’s 100th anniversary float for the Tulip Festival, please contact Marlin.

We are planning on K-4th Grade riding the float on Thursday at the 2:00 parade and Preschool, 5th – 8th Grade riding the float on Friday at the 2:00 parade.  We will be taking a bus with the children both afternoons to Orange City and back, so parents are not required to attend the afternoon parades.  But, we are asking for families to volunteer to come and have their children ride the float for the 6:00 parade on Thursday evening and Friday evening.
