St. Patrick’s Day Parade

March 16, 2012

9:30 a.m.

As many of you know, each year WIPP has its own St. Patrick’s Day parade in which we march across North Cromwell Road, down the carpool driveway at May Howard, and back to our front parking lot. We’re finalizing our plans for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade and we need your help with some things. If you can assist with anything below, please return the bottom of this form to your child’s teacher, call the office (897-7568), or email (, so we can get you on the list.

Our parade day, Friday, March 16th, is not a regular school day. WE WILL NOT HAVE EARLY BIRDS, CARPOOL, OR LUNCH BUNCH ON THIS DAY. Please bring your child to school no later than 9:05. Everyone is invited to come and watch the parade. Children will be dismissed to their parents at about 10:05 immediately following the parade. (In case of inclement weather, we will have to cancel the parade and have a regular school day. PLEASE keep your fingers crossed for us!)

Our 2s join the parade in wagons/strollers pulled by a parent, our 3s ride in decorated trailers, and our 4s march! (There will be more about these details coming home from your child’s teacher.) Everyone is invited to wear green. We are selling WIPP St. Patrick’s Day t-shirts again this year. (See the blog or the form sent home last week. The style is the same as last year.)

Thanks! We’re really looking forward to having fun with this!


While everyone is invited to watch, there might be some of you who would like to participate in the parade. If you have any of the following that you’d be like to drive or walk, please let us know by March 7. Participants need to be in the school parking lot at 9:00 on March 16th.

___ a couple of trailers for our 3s to ride on--and cars/trucks to pull them!

___ a convertible or classic/unusual car or truck (To add a little interest and pizzazz!)

___ decorated bicycles

___ big or odd non-scary animal that you’d like to walk in the parade

___ bagpipes (We’d love a bagpipe player to march along with us!)

___ a leprechaun or other St. Patrick’s Day themed parader(s)!
