Ursuline Academy celebrated the end of classes on May 29 with a drive-through parade on campus. Nearly all of the faculty, staff, and administration lined the sidewalks around the school with bells, pompoms, handmade signs, and facemasks to wish students well as they begin summer vacation and wrap up this historic year. Hundreds of students and parents decorated their vehicles to show their school pride and drove slowly past the line of cheering teachers with thank you signs for the school and faculty.
