GRASONVILLE — On Monday, Dec. 21, Grasonville Elementary’s faculty and staff lined up to do a “drive by car parade” throughout the neighborhoods of Grasonville. The idea to do this around the holiday’s came up during a school PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports) meeting.
School Counselor, Shannon Berry said, “Teachers from various grade levels came to the meeting with the suggestion. Besides our cookie extravaganza, we wanted to create another event where we could see our students in person. The March drive-by was such a huge success and brought so much happiness that we wanted to do it again!”
Teachers decked out their cars with special messages, holiday decor, and holiday music to spread cheer through the streets of Grasonville. They were greeted by anxious students and parents waving to them and holding up their messages of joy and hope. Fourth grade teacher, Dana Kemp reflected on the event, “It was so heartwarming to see students and their families. Being able to make that connection and see them in person, even if from a distance, was a dose of Christmas joy we all needed.”
