Students and parents march rdaround the parking lot during the Sept. 27 parade.
The event included dogs, cats, fish and guinea pigs, with Sophia Buhrow’s guinea pig Oreo among them.
The school first began holding the parade in the mid 1980s.
Before the parade began, the students introduced their pets and say something about them. Those who do not have a pet brought a stuffed animal.
