Older Threes Teddy Bear Parade

The Older Threes had a great time at our Teddy Bear Parade. This was our first year of live-streaming the event and the Village parents were pleased. The Teddy Bear float is the first homework assignment of the school year. Parents and students receive simple instructions informing them to use a box and a string. Every year the variety of floats with a wide array of shapes and themes amaze us! Each float different and special, unique like the child. One common thread is present, they are all made with love and pride. The students parade their work around the EDS courtyard through a maze of smiles and waves from the older students. The Threes feel the love from the faculty and staff. Around each corner, await more waves and positive feedback from students. As we pass, the Kindergarten and PK students remember fondly their own Teddy Bear Parade memories. First Grade students volunteer to help us maneuver our floats along the way. As we look up, the Upper School students are shouting out encouragement and praise. This is a special moment frozen in time. The Teddy Bear Parade has been an Episcopal Day School tradition for more than 26 years. The end result is that the Threes have the knowledge that this is their school and there will always be kind and caring people cheering them on along the way.
