Pauline Johnson Christmas Float Parade, 2014
The Pauline Johnson Christmas Float Parade will be held on Thursday, December 18 at 9:00 a.m. All grades are welcome to participate! Siblings or friends can work together to produce one float. The float should be shoebox size, no bigger than a flat of 24 pop, with a string attached for pulling. Skateboards may be incorporated to give the float wheels. The students may decorate their box any way they wish. Small, motorized items can be on the float, however the float itself should not be remote controlled. No live animals or food items are permitted. Parents are welcome to come at the time of the parade and line the halls as the children walk by with the floats. The route taken will be two slow loops around the school hallways. Students will bring their floats to the gym at 8:30. There is a float example in the Library for those who are new and have not seen one. Students will recieve a participation certificate and a candy cane for participating.
