Vocabulary Parade

Friday, June 7, 2019

What a glorious day for a parade—a Vocabulary Parade! On Friday, June 7, Landmark Elementary School students dressed up as a word from a book they recently read and paraded around the Main Building and into the Meeting Room, where they presented their words. Parents and EMS faculty and staff lined the sun-lit parade route and cheered as the students, dressed in creative, intricate costumes, passed by. The Vocabulary Parade is one of the most anticipated year-end traditions at EMS.

Each student took to the stage and stated their word's definition, synonym, antonym, and an original sentence using the word. The challenging words included crepuscular, succulent, durable, and perfidy.
