Yorbita's College Parade
Yorbita Elementary, a national No Excuses University school, held their annual College Parade where all students celebrated they are headed for college -- NO EXCUSES! Every classroom in the school selects a college they learn about for the year. At the parade students proudly marched with their college flags, banners and sang out their college chants. Yorbita Principal Amy Grigsby ended the ceremony with a promise and pledge asking, "Where are you going?" Kids shouted in reply, "I'm Going to College!"
