Timothy, Savannah and I stayed long enough for the parade. We enjoyed so many different costumes on so many heroes!
Sarah's teacher, Mrs. Rapp, leads her class through the hallway. Any guesses on who she is?
Jessi and Lindsay are both Rosa Parks - Aren't they adorable?
Timothy especially liked Joel's baseball hat.
Sarah was Joni Eareckson Tada and enjoyed being wheeled around for the parade.
Blake and his friend give a smile for the camera. They are dressed up as sports stars -- what else?!!
Allie and her friend Maddie stop for the paparazzi. Allie was Marian Anderson, an African American opera singer famous for being the first African American to sing at the Lincoln Monument. Allie even sang the Star Spangled Banner as part of her presentation.
Allie's teacher, Mrs. Elliott, dressed in fatigues as a support to the men and women serving in the war. I think that is Albert Einstein behind her.
the same voice at home!
For her project she made a place mat in the shape of a bus. On one side it shows Rosa Parks having to sit at the back of the bus and on the other side, after her protest, she is in the front.
