Give a round of applause to the Golf team that has worked hard to be the very best they can be this year, and beat the other schools and their teams. And winning some of these tournaments, “We didn’t play our best but we can always improve off our mistakes we made,” Said Ryan Garza, a player a part of the Golf team. However they are not gone forever, the team will be back in mid-January to take on the other schools.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a 94-year-old event that marks the end of the fall season as it transitions into the Christmas shopping season. It is held and organized by the massive department store, Macy’s. The parade holds many different types of entertainment from Broadway shows to dancers and marching bands. They often employ the use of popular musical artists, dancers, circuses, cheerleaders, celebrities, and marching bands.

The original purpose of this parade was to celebrate the remarkable success that Macy’s had achieved within the first few years of its opening. Macy’s celebrated this by setting up a “Christmas Parade” to kick off the start of the shopping season. It was held on November 27th, 1924 at 9 am. The streets were filled with people, floats, and many different types of performers. Originally no balloons were flying in the air. Live animals from Central Park were the main attraction, but they were replaced with balloons in 1927.

This year's new balloons are a Funko Pop Grogu, or Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian, scientist Ada from the Netflix show, Ada Twist, Tiptoe the reindeer, who stars in Macy’s holiday campaign, and Toni, Macy’s bandleader bear, named after Tony Sarg who created the first balloons used in the parade. The currently confirmed performers include Ballet Hispanico, The Big Apple Circus, Jumpers United for Macy’s Parade, Spirit of America Dance Stars, and Spirit of America Cheer. There are also a few marching bands showing off their talents this year ranging from Virginia to Alabama. The singers and music artists have yet to be announced, but there is a possibility some iconic and frequent artists will be returning.

The Macy’s Parade is a nostalgic and classic way to kickoff the start of Thanksgiving and Christmas. The tradition of watching it has been a part of many families' Thanksgiving for many years. Even if you haven’t watched it before, it's not too late to start! The parade has a little bit of everything and is a great bonding experience and entertainment for Thanksgiving morning. The parade is meant to bring families closer together and enjoy the moments they share. After the parade is over, the fun doesn’t end, there is Thanksgiving Day football. If that doesn’t interest you, then you could always tune into The National Dog Show.

Parents picking up or dropping off your students - Please do not park and use private businesses to pick up your student from school in the afternoon or drop them off in the morning.

We have had recent complaints from surrounding business/daycare facilities where there has been an influx of parents using their parking lot to pick up students after school. This is dangerous to those actually there for the business, especially for a daycare facility where small children are being picked up.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. Please pick up and drop off your students in the parent loop on the West side of the building by the auditorium.
