KIDS SPECIAL! On Thursday, October 2nd, students in grades k-6 will be able to purchase unlimited ride wristbands for $10 (half price). These bands will be good from 3:30 to 7:00 on Thursday evening. Coupons for $2 off regular $20 wrist bands are available in all of the district buildings. Come support our booster organizations, who will be offering face painting, lollipop trees, hayrides, plinko boards, cornhole games, and much, much more!  At the bottom of this email is a basic outline of some of our events during Homecoming.


In addition, the Annual Octorara Homecoming Parade will be held Thursday, October 2nd. All parade participants should enter the lower parking lot and bus loop at the Primary Learning Center. Line- up will begin at 5:00 p.m. Only parade participants will be permitted in this area. All spectators may park in any of the other campus parking lots and walk to the parade route. We encourage you to bring lawn chairs or blankets. The parade will begin promptly at 6:00 pm. The parade route will encompass the road that connects the Primary Learning Center to the Intermediate School and will cross over Highland Road into the bus lane of the Jr./Sr. High School. Our grandstand will be in front of our brave statue and the parade will terminate behind the Jr./Sr. High School. The parade is open to community groups and organizations as well. There is no fee for local businesses or civic organizations to participate. If you are interested in participating in the parade and have not done so already, please contact Jamie Bankert, Assistant Principal and Athletic Director of the Octorara Junior-Senior High School via email at jbankert@octorara.org or by phone at 610-593-8254.
