We have some very exciting upcoming events in October! I wanted to draw your attention to them so that you can plan to be a part of them!
Benefit Concert for Mr. Roy
Tomorrow October 10th from 5:30-8:00 PM there will be a benefit music concert for our custodian, Mr. Roy, who needs some assistance after a family emergency. This musical concert will feature Mr. Berry and Mr. Finger! The guys have already played some preview songs at Morning Celebration and they sound great! Pizza will be sold for dinner as well as baked goods. There will also be a silent auction with some pretty amazing items! Please join us tomorrow in the gym for this incredible performance!
MSU Homecoming Parade
This Friday, October 11th Red Cedar Elementary will be participating in the MSU Homecoming Parade! This has become a wonderful tradition for our school! Please come walk with Red Cedar Elementary in the MSU Homecoming Parade. Meet at Hannah Community Center at 5:30 PM. It is important that you walk the parade with your child! There will not be adult supervision for your child! The parade will begin promptly at 6:00 PM. The theme of this year's homecoming parade is "Superheroes". Feel free to dress up as a super her or wear your best MSU or Red Cedar clothing! Additionally, we invite families to wear clothing from their culture or country to represent our school!
