Manchester's Preschool & Elementary Students Host Thanksgiving Float Parades!

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a parade with floats!  Today, preschool and elementary school students across the district created their own versions of the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade tradition. 

Preschool students used balloons and craft items to create their floats and then paraded around the Whiting School building while the older grades cheered them on and sang holiday songs.


Elementary students from Manchester Township Elementary School created floats using flat, rolling scooters. After a ribbon cutting to start off the parade, students shared their creations which touted everything from snow globes to ice hockey, to airplanes to Mickey and more.  To close out the parade, as done in New York City's famous annual event, was a float featuring the classic Santa Claus.
