Myers Wilkins Elementary teachers hold parade for students

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

DULUTH, MN -- Nearly 50 cars filled with Myers Wilkins Elementary school teachers and staff, drove around the city of Duluth Thursday in a parade like fashion.

During this time apart where students and teachers are not able to have one on one time in the classroom, teachers paraded and held signs to support the kids with words of encouragement.

One of those drivers, Lindsay Colquist says she was surprised by how many of the community members were not connected to Myers Wilkins and decided to show up anyway.

She says it brought joy to many during this tough time.

"It's really hard, this time of uncertainty and everybody's kind of scared. We don't know what's going on, so just to show up for each other and prove to our students and community that we're still thinking of them, and we'll get through this together," said Colquist.

The teachers thanked the students who came out to say hi, along with the Duluth Police Department for helping them get around town.
