Ellis PTA Fall Festival Parade

Published on: 10/23/2020

​​​The Ellis PTA hosted their first "Fall Festival Parade of Art and Fun" on October 22nd to replace their annual Fall Festival due to Covid-19 safety guidelines. 


Even behind the masks, there was obvious excitement and joy displayed by students, parents, and volunteers throughout the evening as this was the first Ellis community event that they have participated in since the PTA Culture Fest in February 2020.

Artwork submitted by students for the PTA Reflections contest was on display for all to view.

 

The PTA accepted donations of non-perishable ​canned goods to be given to Emma​us House​, a local soup kitchen that the Ellis community donates to on a regular basis.


The Ellis mascot, ​Charles the Bobcat, made an appearance to wave to the students.


Donations of individually wrapped snacks, candy, hand sanitizer, toothbrushes/toothpaste, and toys were given to students as they drove by. These donations were provided by Ellis PTA members, PTA business partners, and these local organizations:

Live Oak Public Libraries
Chatham EMS
Savannah Police
Boosterthon
Savannah Fire
Department of Public Health
Godley Station Dental


Members of the Savannah Police and Boosterthon not only donated items but also volunteered to hand out the items to students. 

 


Volunteers wrapped around the block to adhere to social distancing guidelines.


 


Safe, socially distanced fun was had by all. View WTOC's coverage of the event here​
