Park Elementary has been "sorted" (if you have seen Harry Potter you'll understand) and has been chosen to represent the Gryffindor House!  Gryffindor is the house which most values the virtues of Courage, Bravery, and Determination.  That definitely describes our school.  Three other schools have been sorted to represent Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin.  All Four Houses will be competing against each other to see how many wizards/witches or muggles come to the District Lights On Event.  You are welcome to dress up as your favorite wizard or witch or just come as a muggle (non-magical person). There will be activities and games for the whole family, so come make a night of it! Monday, October 29, 2018 at 6 pm Located at the new Advanced Learning Center 161 E. 400 N. in Salem.  More info on Lights On Events:

Launched in October 2000, Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. The effort has become a hallmark of the afterschool movement and generates media coverage across the country each year.

 The Afterschool Alliance organizes Lights On Afterschool to draw attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students by offering them opportunities to learn new things—such as science, community service, robotics, Tae Kwon Do and poetry—and discover new skills. The events send a powerful message that millions more kids need quality afterschool programs.

 It's called "Lights On", because the lights are left on after school to run the programs.

It's for everyone!!!
