SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Parents and administrators cheered on the Class of 2020 on their last first day of school at the Savannah Arts Academy.
On Monday, parents lined up with signs, filled with pictures of their child, and cheered as the students were led into the building by Principal Gif Lockley.
“To see all of the parents come together and be able to celebrate our children […] and what they’ve accomplished and what they will accomplish, it means a lot to me,” said Jennifer Graham, a parent of a graduating senior at Savannah Arts Academy.
Also in attendance was Superintendent Dr. Ann Levett who said what an important time it is for these students and what a great tradition the parade is.
“It’s just a proud feeling to know that we’ve made it through 12 years,” said Telecia Turner, another parent who also helped organize this year’s parade.
“I just hope everyone really enjoys this day and this year and all the work they’ve put in to make this year successful,” said Graham.
The morning festivities ended with parents hanging up the signs they made for their children in the cafeteria.
