After a few opening remarks and the National Anthem we will have music and booths with plenty of healthy treats and information for both students and parents. Our local dentists will have dental care supplies for students who visit their booth! In Alice Davis Park Coach Anderson of the Tigers and Coach Nowell of the Trojans will have athletes on hand to demonstrate and teach fitness skills and drills. Wear comfortable clothes because every 20 minutes we will be having a street dance for the MOVE TO LEARN program as part of the SIMPSON STEPS program we will have in every school this year to promote healthy activity and eating habits.
Parents of K-4 students are welcome and encouraged to march with their child in the Parade to assist with supervision and cut down on the confusion of finding Mom immediately after the Parade!
Our planned lineup of Bands features Joey Robinson and the Faithful with a guest appearance by Minnie Holloway; The Overflow Church Band; First Baptist of Magee; and the Hobbs Family.
Students: wear your school colors and come out and support DESTINATION GRADUATION August 21st from 6-8 PM on Main Street in Mendenhall. Come early for the Parade line-up!
