A Senior Parade has been organized through a collaborative effort with the Perry Township Police and Fire Departments. Seniors need to gather at the vacant lot next to JC Penney’s at 6:45pm. This particular activity will be held on Monday, May 18th @ 7:15 PM and will follow this route.  The parade will begin at the vacant lot next to JC Penney’s near Whipple Avenue; head north on Whipple to Tuscarawas Street; left on Tuscarawas Street to Perry Drive; left onto Perry Drive to 13th Street; right on 13th Street and ending at Perry HS. Once at PHS, vehicles will enter the bus loop, drive in front of the building and immediately exit the parking lot. There will be a couple of District school buses, Perry Township fire truck, and an estimated more than 200 cars in the parade. There will also be 5-6 police cars helping to monitor the safety of everyone. Everyone is welcome to join the celebration (doing our part to adhere to proper social distancing and guidelines) by cheering on these amazing students at any point of the route to cheer, applaud, and show signs of support to our graduates.
