Students of Piney Woods Elementary School held their third annual Purple Martin’s Day Parade on Tuesday, November 21, 2023, at 8:00 a.m. in the school’s front car rider loop. This parade tradition is based on the book Balloons Over Broadway which begins the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade unit of study in STEM and Art classes. Students in all classrooms select, design, and construct their unique balloon float. Local high school athletes and band members also participate in this magical experience.
The school is thankful for the incredible community support, including the Piney Woods PTO, parent volunteers, and family members.
