Alden Parade

Siblings Leo and Maggie Heiden greeted Alden Elementary staff during a parade Monday evening. The staff wanted to host the event in order to give students a proper sendoff into the summer.

The connection between teacher and student has never been more evident than it was during Monday evening's parade near Alden Elementary.

Staff members weren't quite ready to say goodbye to their students on March 15, when Governor Kim Reynolds announced that school buildings would close for four weeks. On April 17 she announced they would remain closed through May.
