East Bridgewater Middle School staff held a parade through town to help stay connected with the community. Over 50 vehicles lined up with a police escort, and rode through town.

All the vehicles were decorated with signs, balloons, and some blaring music — all of this to try to stay connected with students and lift the spirit of the community.

Second grade teacher Jennifer Rosher had signs reading she misses her students, and that her classroom Room 204 rocks!

“The kids and parents are having a tough time with this and we just want to see them smile,” said Rosher. 

“We want to show the kids that they’re not forgotten during this time of hardship,” added second grade teacher Lindsey Wolfe. “We want to let them know their teachers are here to support them and to cheer them on. We still love them, no matter how far away we have to be.”

East Bridgewater School Superintendent Liz Legault said this parade is a way of giving back to the community.

“Our teachers are working from home calling and checking on the kids. They wanted to have this parade today and get out and wave to the kids along the route,” said Legault. ”I think there are a lot of kids looking for us and trying to engage with us. We miss our students, the parents and community. We wanted to give back today so that everyone can see the teachers”

Legault wants the community to know the schools are still serving lunch to the community and even if you’re not from East Bridgewater, people can come and have lunch.
