Thursday: Creepy Coffee + Halloween Parade + Early Release The Ortega Halloween Parade will be Thursday October 31 at 9:00 AM. The parade goes around the school twice, and can be viewed anywhere around the school. Please remember to keep your child’s costume appropriate. If they are wearing something that will be distracting or uncomfortable for the rest of the day, please provide them a change of clothes to use after the parade.

The Walk A Thon is almost here and we still have many carnival shifts that need to be filled.
