J.L. Lomax Elementary Faculty Parade

The staff members decorated their cars and made signs for this exciting event. Once on the road, teachers rolled down their windows, turned up their happy music, and waved and shouted at the students as they drove by their homes. Thanks to Facebook posts, many families and students were waiting on their drive-by visit. Words like, “I love you,” or “I miss you,” could be heard spoken from both sides.


When J. L. Lomax speech-language pathologist, Allison Crenshaw, was asked about attending the drive she said, “Of course I am attending! I don’t want my students to look for me and not see me. I miss them.” At the end of the drive, she stated, “I am so glad we were a part of that.”


Thanks to this drive, many students were able to see their teachers and hear their positive words of encouragement. For any students or families that did not see the teachers on that drive-thru day, all of the employees at J.L. Lomax want them to know how special they all. We can’t wait to see you again!
