Everyone loves a parade! And what better way to honor long standing traditions and the rich history of Brockton than with the 124th Annual Huntington Elementary School Memorial Day Parade. Our parade dates back to 1898 and has become a community institution. We march in memory of those who gave their lives serving in our country’s military. This is a memorable experience which allows our students to march proudly through their neighborhood alongside members of the school community, Campello community, and the Brockton community at-large. We hope that you will grant your child permission to join us along the sidelines to watch your child march proudly with their class.
Although we moved into the Gilmore building for the Fall of 2017, we will continue the tradition to march in the 124th Huntington School Parade on Tuesday, May 31st, at 12:00 p.m.* We will load buses from the Gilmore Elementary School around 11:15 am to be ready to march from the Huntington Elementary School. Following the parade, we will return to the Gilmore by bus.
The parade route is as follows: the pupils will line up on the playground at the rear of the building, leave the playground and proceed east on Market Street, north on Warren Avenue, east on West Chestnut Street, south on Main Street, west on South Street, south on Warren Avenue, and west on Market Street to return to the playground.
This wonderful event gains the attention of the local paper and news outlets. Please check with the office to be sure your child has a signed media release. Also, please see that your child is appropriately dressed for this honorary position. We ask that our students wear their school uniform including a navy blue collar shirt or the Gilmore navy collar shirt in keeping with the patriotic theme of our parade. If there are any concerns about the above-mentioned issues, please call me.
We are pleased to inform you of this honorary position and look forward to seeing you at the parade.
