Rupley Summer Quest Students Show Patriotic Pride at Fourth of July Parade

June 30, 2017

One of the sure signs that it’s summertime is participating in Fourth of July holiday activities. Students in session at Rupley Summer Quest decided to celebrate their own version of the holiday at school by hosting a Fourth of July Parade.

Students created their own decorations to wave as “fireworks” or wear as apparel in the parade, and the instrument explorers team provided music. Students created their own “instruments” out of normal household items like paper towel tubes filled with beads. Patriot tunes were also played over the loudspeaker in the playground area, where parents and family members were invited to join in the fun.

After the students walked through the school, they did a giant lap around the outside with their Summer Quest teachers, who also dressed for the event and encouraged the students to cheer. Chants of “USA! USA!” could be heard all around the school, as well as choruses of “The Saints Go Marching In” in English and Spanish. The students culminated the event with red, white, and blue popsicles as a special patriotic treat.

We thank all members of the armed forces and their families, past and present, for their service, and wish all of our CCSD59 families a happy, safe, and memorable Fourth of July holiday.
