Students, Parents Parade for Teacher

Paul Bernardino  &nsbp An Earhart Elementary teacher received a special parade last week for Teacher Appreciation Week.

An otherwise quiet, gated community on Bay Farm Island became the site of a festive Teacher Appreciation Week parade on May 7. The home of Ms. Kelly, a longtime kindergarten teacher at Earhart Elementary School, saw families from her class pass by one at time with balloons, signs and the general message that she is missed. This year marks Kelly’s last at Earhart, so the kids represented her last class, their year together cut short by the COVID-19.

“It was a great opportunity for our children to see Ms. Kelly and say hello to classmates (from a distance in cars),” wrote parent Cat Bernardino.
