Student Parade!

Latta Elementary Montessori students in grades 1-3 hosted a Parade of Nations for parents and community members to enjoy at the district's track. Each of the 15 classes chose a nation to research and represent in the parade. Students studied the nation's landmarks, customs, food, native wildlife, folklore and culture. After completing their research, students produced props, costumes, banners and flags to display in the parade. Students also completed written research that was read to the crowd as each country passed the grandstand. The world came to Latta that day and students learned there is a place in the world for them!

To celebrate Read Across America Week, the 5-year-old kindergarten students joined in the parade wearing the Dr. Seuss hats they had made themselves. Many lively hats depicting our favorite Dr. Seuss stories were displayed on top of smiling faces as the students paraded around the track waving at the cheering crowd.
