Congaree Elementary teacher do "Wednesday Wave" for the first time

March 26, 2020

West Columbia, SC - When you’re a teacher, it’s hard to go for days -- or weeks -- without seeing your students. 

 

Recently, educators at Congaree Elementary came up with a plan, which they dubbed the “Wednesday Wave,” to let their students know how much they miss them as South Carolina schools continue to remain closed to stop the spread of coronavirus.

 

Wednesday afternoon, the teachers -- driving roughly 2 dozen cars painted with signs like “We Miss You” and “Congaree Proud” -- pulled out of the school’s parking lot and, flanked by a South Congaree police car, honked and waved their way through the school’s neighborhoods. Kids and their families stood on driveways, front porches and yards, some carrying signs,  to let the teachers know they missed them, too.

 

“We needed this,” Principal Chris Dickey said. “I think this parade was a way to keep us all connected.  It shows that even though we’re not in the building, we’re still together.”
