Attention Parents. Monday October 31st Pre K-8 classes at Junction Hill School will have a Halloween Costume and Parade contest that will be held in the Gym from 2:30 till 3:00.

This year we ask parents who would like to come to arrive at the Gym doors before or by 2:30 to observe the costume parade. Parents wishing to check their students out after the parade may do so, though the absence will count against the student's attendance.
