CLAY CITY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Clay City Elementary School students and teachers were given the chance to see each other one last time before the end of the year. This evening, parents drove their children in a parade along Lankford St. behind the school where their teachers were waiting to wave good-bye.
Over 50 cars of students turned out and some even made signs. Though the school year was cut short, Principal Michael Owens didn’t want it to end on a low-note.
“It was a good opportunity to say good-bye to them, bring a little bit of closure to this school year, and wish them well as they head off into summer break,” Principal Owens said. “It was a neat, neat experience. Neat opportunity for us to do tonight.”
The school year may not have ended as planned, but Clay City still had a parade to remember for years to come.
