The new traditions continued this week with the Senior Parade and Slideshow at Argyle High School in Canyon Falls. This year marked the first time for the events at the campus, located in Flower Mound. These two events started in 2020 during the COVID-19 shortened school year. They have become such a success and memorable event for seniors that they are now new traditions for AHS. Even though the rain didn't cooperate it was another fun-filled night for seniors!
