The student council officers and classroom representatives all participated in the San Dimas Day Parade at the Los Angeles County Fair on September 12, 2014. We were all so very excited because the parade was one of our first activities this year. The Ekstrand Bobcats had their own float! It was a huge truck from Sander’s Towing with hay bales and banners all the way around the bed of the truck. The banners said, “Go, Bobcats” and “Ekstrand Bobcats!” We were sitting on the float doing our chants called Mighty, Mighty, Bobcats and our new Distinguished School chant. The cheers were written by Mrs. Rojas, a 5th grade teacher, and tell everyone what Ekstrand is all about. Our amazing advisors, Ms. Humphrey, Mrs. Chin, and Coach Dade cheered too. They cheered us on and helped us let the crowd know that Ekstrand can STAND OUT! As you can see, our representatives and officers, and even Mrs. Newton had a great time. Some parents and teachers were there. They watched and supported us from the beginning to the end.
