Students, teachers and parents participated in a Fourth of July parade at the Shell Point Hobbit Hill in Port Royal last week on Thursday, July 3. Miss. Laurie led the patriotic group around the neighborhood, much to the delight of local residents who waved and cheered on the passing children. The youngsters were dressed in their red, white and blue tie-dyed T-shirts, and carried a variety of instruments, including homemade shakers that they made during class. It was a hot afternoon, and after everyone returned, the kids celebrated with juice and cupcakes. Thanks to the staff for their hard work making this a special event.
