FALL HARVEST PARADE -FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31
Our Fall Harvest parade will take place on Friday, October 31st beginning at approximately 9:15 on the playground. Get ready to see some great costumes and have some fun. Students have the option to wear their costumes to school if they wish. Each grade will have the opportunity to parade around the playground and share their costumes with the entire school. Parents are invited to attend. Make sure to bring your cameras as this will be an occasion you don't want to miss. There will be no Running Club on this day.

HALLOWEEN CANDY – TURN YOUR CANDY INTO CASH WITH MOSER ORTHODONTICS
Dr. Noel Moser of Moser Orthodontics, Willow Grove’s business partner, is once again offering a great way to recycle all of that candy that your Grizzlies will collect on Halloween. Dr. Moser will donate a $1 for every pound of candy we collect. (Last year we collected over 400lbs of candy!) So, after Halloween let your child take out a week’s worth of treats, prevent some cavities, and donate the rest of the candy as a fundraiser. The candy collection box will be located in the front office until November 5th, so stop by and drop some candy off. Dr. Moser will be donating the candy to our troops overseas and the San Diego Rescue Mission. Thanks Moser Orthodontics for this creative solution on how to handle all the candy our kiddos accumulate on Halloween.
SCHOOL SITE COUNCIL PARENT REPRESENTATIVES
Ashley McClenaghan, Vicky Ingle, and Deborah Teresso are our parent representatives for our 2014-2015 School Site Council. Thank you for being on the council to support Willow Grove's instructional goals.
