Parkdale School Staff hit the streets to say hi to their students

Parkdale Staff did a drive-by parade by students’ houses today to show support and say hi.

Parkdale School Staff set off in their cars in the afternoon of May 19 to show support for their students studying from home.

In vehicles decked out in balloons and posters, and some staff dressed in fun costumes, they drove past students’ houses in the city honking their horns and waving.

On May 8, Parkdale School announced on their FaceBook Page that they were planning on doing the parade for the afternoon of May 19. The May 8 post on the Parkdale School page says, “Parkdale Staff is lonely and wants to see out students.” The post then gives the contact information to call to make sure you were on their drive-by parade list.

Parkdale Staff started their parade at 1 p.m. this afternoon and will be driving around Wetaskiwin to spread cheer to their students whom they miss seeing everyday at school.
