“It was the sweetest thing that totally caught us off guard”, said Pam Hall who lives in The Woodlands of Fairhope. “We didn’t know it was happening because our children don’t go to that school. We heard lot of horns honking and screaming and went outside to see what was happening. All of the teachers had sweet signs on their cars to their students, some had balloons and noise makers. The children were standing in front of their houses waving and so excited to see their teachers on parade!”
