Clarke Northampton Hosts a Parade for Preschool Families


May 11, 2020—Teacher Appreciation Week prompted the Clarke Northampton team to deck their cars with balloons and signs and host a parade for preschoolers. The team traveled over five hours throughout the Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts to spread cheer! Preschool families greeted their support teams from a distance — and one family even decorated their yard with flowers in honor of each educator!

“It was such an uplifting yet simple event for all,” explains Marian Hartblay, director of Clarke Northampton. “To reach each family, we drove over 132 miles. It was well worth it to see the smiles and we hope our students will always remember this.”
