Storybook Parade

During my visit, which was Reading Week, one of the teachers organized a Storybook Parade, where all the teachers dressed as their favorite storybook character and paraded through the hallways. The kids loved it! I’ve never heard so many squeals of delight. It really made me a little jealous that I didn’t go to the STEM school as a kid.

Above we see Hansel; and bringing up the tail of the parade, we see Scott in red pajamas as Ruby the Red Worm. Below, back in the art room, the kids in costume and character jump around for impromptu photos.
