St. John Parade

 

We are so excited to be a part of the St. Parade this year. The St. Johns Parade has been a tradition in the North Portland area since 1962. All students from the M.U.S.E. Program are invited to march. The only cost to parents is the t-shirt which we will use as our uniform (see below)


Rehearsal: Sunday, May 6 at 3pm Wilson High School 1151 SW Vermont St. 97219


Uniform: We will be using our Lime Green and Blue T-shirts as our uniform. Students can choose either color. This is the same t-shirt we used last year for the Portland Junior Rose Parade so if you have one from that event and it still fits, you are set to go. Sweatshirts are also available.
