Independence on parade

Students sang songs and dressed as their favorite patriotic figures for a Fourth of July parade around the school on Halls Ferry Road. At left, 5-year-old Kristin Goff totes her doll as she pulls her wagon down Monroe Street to celebrate with preschool classmates at Children’s House Montessori School. (The Vicksburg Post/C.
