Come join the jubilant class of 2023! Seniors start the festivities by decorating their cars and bikes in the South parking lot at 4:30pm. The actual parade begins at 6pm. The route runs north up Franklin St. along the park then returns south on Williams St. back to the school. We need parent volunteers to help plan prior to May 12th, as well as volunteers for the parade itself. Volunteer HERE.
