Back to school” is not a phrase one associates with the middle of May, but at Jean Callison Elementary School, the phrase took on more meaning Friday.
Callison staff and Vacaville Unified School District bus drivers hosted a car parade, where teachers got to pass by students’ homes and wave from their vehicles. Additionally, former Callison students who are now graduating high school got to visit their old stomping grounds and cheer on the teachers who helped them out in their early years.
Callison’s PAWSOME Parade gave staff a chance to drive through neighborhoods within the school’s attendance boundaries. The parade was largely organized by Callison’s faculty as well as VUSD’s transportation department. Transportation Director Amanda Hightman said the department was planning its own parade at the end of the month for special needs students.
