On the morning of May 14, teachers, administrators and staff members from Harley Avenue Primary School gathered at Elwood Middle School to host a reverse parade for students. The sun was shining, teachers decorated their cars, balloons were hung, bubbles blown and music played throughout the campus. Cars were parked along the campus’ perimeter and more than 300 families drove through to wave hello to their “Harley family.” The parade concluded with a wave from Principal Elissa Millan and the Harley Knight.
In the afternoon, faculty and staff from Elwood Middle School hosted their reverse parade and again welcomed hundreds of families to drive through the campus. Principal Dr. Christina Sapienza and Assistant Principal Dawn Valle were there to welcome cars into the middle school parking lot.
“Our hearts were warmed seeing all of the smiling faces of the students we miss so much,” Eileen Kelly-Gorman, the district director of math, science and technology, said.
The district is looking forward to celebrating with students and families from James H. Boyd Intermediate School and John H. Glenn High School on Thursday, May 21. The parades will begin for Boyd families at 11 a.m. and John Glenn at 3 p.m.
