Montgomery’s First MHS Senior Car Parade

June 7, 2021

A group of Montgomery moms decided to “do whatever it takes” to enhance the senior year for the Class of 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Keeping safety as their priority, they planned a senior night at a local scare farm, a bonfire held at the Elks Club, a senior event at Stumpy’s Hatchet House, a Donut Day, and now, the grand finale—a car parade.

The public is invited to bring noise makers to applaud the graduates along the parade route on Monday, June 14, at 5:30 pm. Best viewing areas include: the sidelines of the road through Skillman Park, or the new sidewalk along Burnt Hill and Skillman roads. Seniors will gather at 5 pm at Montgomery High School.

The Montgomery Police Department will start the parade at 5:30 pm. Seniors will drive in decorated cars along a “nostalgic route.” The convoy begins on Route 601; turns left into Skillman Park to go past Village Elementary School; turns left onto Burnt Hill Road to go past Orchard Hill Elementary School and Lower Middle School; turns right into the Upper Middle School parking lot. Students will then drive around the solar panels, turn left onto Burnt Hill Road; turn right onto Skillman Road; then turn left back into the parking lot of MHS near the football stadium.

Seniors will then enjoy a food truck celebration, followed by the annual “Senior Sunset Tradition” at Skillman Park 8 pm. The moms—Sonia Cavalli, Tracie Drift, Kathy Galvin, Cara Ipecker, and Jen Seamon— spearheaded the event in collaboration with high school administrators, the Montgomery Police Department, and school security administrator Tom Wain.

“We hope the community will join us,” Seamon says. Please park in the lower school lots or Skillman Park, (not MHS parking lot). “Whether you have a senior or not, please join us and support our learning community.”
