Posted Date: 01/25/2017

Pershing Elementary won 3rd place and $300 for their entry in the annual Muskogee Christmas Parade sponsored by Downtown Muskogee, Inc. The theme for the float was Disney Pixar’s Finding Nemo. The scene for the float was the fish tank in the dentist office. The dentist’s niece, Darla, was played by Pershing principal Karen Watkins. Pershing librarian, Marlene Moore, was a patient and the dentist was portrayed by her husband. The Rougher Pup News Team depicted the fish in the tank.

This was truly a family project for Pershing Elementary. Debbie Russell, video productions teacher at Pershing, and her husband masterminded the idea and put the float together. Kudos to Pershing Elementary Model School of Technology and their creative staff! Your school spirit encourages all our spirits!
