Senior Walk-Through at MES

For several years, the seniors have done a walk-through at Mountainburg Elementary. The MES teachers, staff, and students line the halls as they come through the building dressed in their cap and gown. On Thursday, May 12, the Class of 2022 paraded through MES one last time as students of Mountainburg Schools.


The event ends on the playground with the current seniors and current class of kindergarten

students.
