The 5th graders at WDE showed their enthusiasm for the last Vocabulary Word Parade in which they will participate. Blaze D. said, “This is the best parade we’ve had, and it’s sad I won’t be in it next year.” Each student dressed to impress with his or her chosen, on grade level vocabulary word. Signs were created to show the word and definition. The students had a great time at their final parade.
