Making Connections with School Parades

Making Connections with School Parades
Posted on 06/01/2020
From the Class of 2020 Senior Parade to the “reverse parades” held at each of Hicksville’s school buildings, it was clear – all in attendance felt an overwhelming sense of what it meant to be a school community again. Each school invited faculty and staff to meet on school grounds while parents and students drove past. There were cars festooned with balloons, posters of every size and shape, streamers, and students and teachers waving, horns honking, cheers as students, parents and teachers recognized each other, and big, broad smiles, not even the masks could hide. For a brief time, our school communities were united.

On May 9th, East Street held its parade. “Everyone has such a good time,” explained Principal Jean-Marie Serra. “Saturday's parade brought so much joy to everyone who attended. Teachers, staff members, parents and students were delighted to see each other."

Many thanks to the parents, students and staff who participated in the parade, and to the Nassau County Police Department for helping us to conduct our parade safely!
