Red Ribbon Week at Camarena!

Character Parade

Tomorrow will be having our annual Character Parade at 8:30 a.m. on the blacktop. The purpose of our character parade is to develop camaraderie during the holiday season and celebrate the power of stories and people to enrich life. The guidelines for the parade is that each student may dress-up as a character from history, books, movies, magazines, and/or comics.

Students are not to wear masks, have face painting, blood, gore, weapons, or clowns.  It will be at the discretion of the staff to take appropriate action if any costume is deemed inappropriate.  We believe all costumes will be in good taste and represent the spirit of the activity.

Please ensure your child has an outfit to wear after the parade, as all students will change from their costume after the parade to return to class and continue their learning.

Thank you for your cooperation and support to make this a great event!
