Marshfield, WI (OnFocus) One first grade class is doing its part to give teachers recognition for National Teacher Appreciation Day on May 5 while schools are unable to gather together in the classroom.

Ciarra Ann Green organized a parade with her son’s classmates at Madison Elementary to drive past teacher Kelly Trulen’s home on Monday evening and show support. Most were able to participate in the event.

“She’s just been too amazing to not be able to give something in return and definitely deserves the recognition,” said Green. “Her being able to see the children will lift all spirits and bring joy. During these challenging times, there’s no better way to show our appreciation than spread with love from each of her students.”

Trulen’s students presented with gifts and a cake which read, “You did say our homework was a piece of cake.” The event was a nice surprise for Trulen, who said she missed her students and it was so good to see them.
