Decatur Public Schools Hold 2nd Annual HIP Parade Saturday

Posted:

Decatur - The Decatur Public Schools annual HIP Parade is much more than a chance for children to come and play, or to march through downtown with their parents and teachers from schools, it's also a chance for parents to see how important their involvement in their child's education really is.

Saturday marked the Decatur Public School's second annual HIP Parade, which stands for Having Involved Parents.

It's that parental involvement that students desperately need said superintendent Dr. Gloria Davis.

"We need people.  We parents to make sure that their children are doing what they need to do every single day in schoool.  Showing up on time, doing their assignments, doing their homework, so it takes everybody it takes a village," Davis told WAND News.
