Balloons Over Broadway

Over the past week, second graders learned about the history of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade by reading “Balloons Over Broadway.”  Today, they (virtually) met one of the masterminds behind the scenes, Ms. Grobman’s friend, Lexie McGowans, who volunteers at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade!  Lexie is balloon handler and helped run since 2019 as part of the production team. She was able to tell the class all about being part of the big day! The class prepared questions to ask Lexie about the big day, and were very interested in the whole process.
