Parade day was a bit soggy this year but we didn’t let that get our spirits down for very long. The enthusiasm shown by our group far overshadowed the untimely rain drops. Ms. Payne and Mr. Harris had the right attitude. Why let a little precipitation rain on our parade? Mrs. Mathews and the cheerleaders helped keep spirits high with help from
