Cherry Street Elementary students celebrated Literacy Week with a book parade.
Students and teachers created wearable sandwich boards with information from their favorite book. It required reading a book, writing a short review, and artwork which made it a cross-curriculum experience.
At the end of the school day on Friday, they all paraded across campus with their creations.
Students also wanted to thank Macy's through their parade. The department store donates money to the school for books through the Reading is Fundamental program.
Media Specialists Lori Young, better known as "Story Lori," said hosting the parade was the perfect way to thank Macy's. Plus, it's always fun to get together.
"It's one of those moments where you say ah, this is what it's all about. You know, we sometimes get bogged down in our everyday activities, and it is very nice to be able to see the kids really get excited about something, have fun, and get to see their peers."
