Betsy Ross Car Parade 2020!
On Friday, April 17, 2020, Betsy Ross Primary School hosted a car parade in front of the building at 1315 Marengo Avenue to celebrate the special bond between teachers and staff and their students. Braving the elements (it snowed that morning!), Principal Bill Milnamow and BR teachers and staff stood out in front of the school (a safe distance apart!) holding signs that showed how much they missed their classes. In return, parents and their children drove by honking horns, waving, shouting and holding up signs to show their love for their teachers and staff. It was a bittersweet moment for everyone that day as Governor Pritzker prepared to announce that all schools in Illinois would be closed for the remainder of the year.
