Thanksgiving Parade

A KES Tradition that Combines Research, Creativity, History and Technology

KES fifth graders presented American History in approximately 30 thematic floats to a delighted audience of parents and students right before the Thanksgiving break.

The parade celebrated highlights of American history, spanning English colonist John Smith and the Mayflower to gymnastics great Simone Biles, and Ellen Ochoa, the first Hispanic woman to go to space.

The wonderful KES tradition combines research, history, art and, new this year, technology. 

While students holding handmade floats followed the parade route across the stage, their companion Keynote presentation was projected onto the big screen, sharing compelling highlights of their topic.
