The end of the school year is almost here, unfortunately because of COVID-19 the normal send offs and goodbyes aren't able to take place.

Before distance learning ends and summer begins, students at All Saints Catholic School got together to give one last bittersweet goodbye to their teachers.

A group of parents got together and organized a decorated car caravan so the goodbyes could be said from a safe distance.

The cars were decorated with signs, balloons, and confetti.

This gave both teachers and students a moment to see each other in person.

The principal at All Saints Catholic School, Suzette Williams, tells us, This probably was their best teacher appreciation day ever because we haven’t been with them in so long and when you aren’t able to be together, it makes you understand all of the blessings you have.”

Many of the students dropped off gifts, letters and flowers.

Karen Arras, a teacher at All Saints Catholic School, tells us, "The fact that they’re here. Like these are my students, and they’re waiting to get closer, just six feet away, to tell me. The fact that they took the time out of a Saturday to be with me.”

Thanking the teachers who worked through this pandemic, making sure their students didn't fall behind.
