Clairton Elementary celebrates the month of the young child. Preparing for the parade are 3rd graders Max Carnegie, Carmen Breegle, and Mason Suss, who carried the opening banner. The banner was made by elementary art teacher Ms. Irwin and her class. The elementary school hosted its annual Month of the Young Child parade and assembly on Wednesday, inviting parents and city officials into the school. Dressed in a rainbow of colors representing each classroom, students in kindergarten through second grade marched through the halls with the high school band, honeybears, cheerleaders, special characters and guests. To conclude the parade they performed "What I Am," an inspirational song about their growth in the gymnasium.
During the Month of the Young Child parade, Columbia Gas' Digger Dog enjoyed the parade and took time at the end to pose with Mrs. Englert's 2nd grade class.
