General INformation and sign-up forms

Happy Year of the Pig next year!  It's supposed to be a year of good fortune and luck.  Starr King sends a parade team to march in the annual Chinatown Chinese New Year parade — join us!

Parade participants can choose one of our three activities:  the dance team, the drum corps, or the dragon.  All groups are co-ed.  If you'd like to join us but can't commit to practicing, we have a few spots for children to walk with Principal Martin holding our Starr King banner too. Parade Coordinator gets final say in activity assignment.  

The team accepts up to 50 Starr King students from grades 1-5 (sorry, kinders!  Next year!), but please check the suggested grade levels for each activity when signing up.
