St. Mary's Students Make History Come to Life With Parade

On Wednesday, May 22nd, fourth-graders at St. Mary Catholic Community School impressed all who visited with their Indiana History Parade projects. Set up like a science fair, Indiana History topics were on display via tri-fold boards, shoebox “floats”, and oral presentations. Students from other classes visited the parade during the day while family and friends were invited to the well-attended evening event.

Throughout the school year, Mrs. Arianne Wong teaches Indiana History in her classroom. The Indiana History Parade project is a culmination of everything students have learned. This project is also a chance for the students to teach school community and family members what they have learned. After making the rounds at the parade and listening to presentations, Principal Tom Ruiz commented, “I have learned more about the history of our state in one hour tonight than I have in a year!”
