The second week of digital learning in Gwinnett County brought cold rain, but some Duncan Creek Elementary School staff tried to help lift students' spirits with a socially safe gesture.

Duncan Creek Elementary staff participated in a voluntary parade of cars through the Trilogy Park subdivision at 10 a.m. on Monday. Trilogy Park in Hoschton is the largest subdivision in the school's attendance zone. The subdivision publicized the parade on social media on Sunday.

Staff who participated were advised to stay in their cars to limit contact and proximity to other staff and students and wore Duncan Creek spirit wear. Duncan Creek is a school in the Mill Creek cluster. 

More that 50 staff members participated in the parade, which progressed through the neighborhood for about an hour.

Students stood in front of their homes and held signs and waved to the teachers.

"This was an amazing experience for everyone and lifted all our spirits," Duncan Creek Principal Carrie Yougel said.

Duncan Creek Elementary staff are looking to visit more subdivisions in the school zone in the near future.
