Please note that the Fall Festival is at Naranja Park this year!

Families, friends, and teachers, we are seeking sponsors for our Trunk or Treat event! Do you love halloween and enjoy dressing up and decorating your trunk, or do you know someone who does?
Please reach out to a neighbor, a friend, or a business to take on the challenge of creating the most spooktacular trunk!

To keep admission costs to the Fall Festival down we are counting on sponsors to help fund the event.

We will be needing candy and trinket donations for this event, look for more information coming soon.

If you are interested in helping out at the event, have questions or comments please email nikgreen79@yahoo.com.

Fall Parade
Oct 31 @ 8:45 am – 9:45 am

October 31st will be another day of fun-filled learning at Leman Academy. However, this one will have a bit more fun added into it! We will have a costume parade at 8:45 that morning and classrooms will have Fall parties throughout the day. If you wish for your child to opt out from participating in these activities, we will provide alternate activities for your child/children to participate in. Please, let your child’s teacher know as soon as possible so we can plan for this.

Parade at 8:45-9:15: The scholars of Leman Academy will parade in their costumes for our families and friends. The Fall Parade will begin at the Preschool Entrance on the West side and end at the Main Entrance on the East side of the school. You will be able to bring a lawn chair and watch the parade from the sidewalk in our traffic loop.
The traffic loop will be closed for parking at 8:25.
Please, for safety’s sake, sit on the sidewalks north of PreK and noorth of our Main Office only. You also may sit on your tailgate if your vehicle is parked in a loop parking space.

This event will be so much fun for all of us!
