To help celebrate teacher appreciation week, Sacred Heart School council threw a drive-by parade to share social distance love for the teachers and staff.
Students have not been in classrooms to see their teachers face to face for almost two months. Many of these students showed up to display their appreciation for all that their teachers do, not only on a regular basis, but all the energy they have put in to help them continue their education during the pandemic.
The social distance parade past the school was led by two fire-trucks from the Wetaskiwin Fire Department. Students drove by with their family in vehicles; many had signs of gratitude while others expressed how they missed their teachers.
The teachers of Sacred Heart Catholic School stood six-feet apart from one another in front of the school, shaking pom-poms and holding signs of their own stating how they missed their students.
The pandemic has reminded many families, now forced to home school, how much they appreciate teachers and in-classroom learning.
However, for now students and teachers will have to settle for cheering each other on from the sidelines—working through this pandemic the best they can together.
