Hundreds of Kolter Elementary families held handmade posters and cheered for their teachers during a car parade celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week. The parade, organized by PTO president and teacher appreciation chairs Brooke Wagenheim and Hydee Kagan, included dozens of teachers and staff members rolling through Meyerland to hear words of praise from their students. Some teachers popped out of sunroofs to wave, while others brought along a furry friend in their backseat. The school’s nurse, Cathy Crisp, decorated her car with oversized handcrafted band aids and a huge plastic bag full of fake ice. Her car stereo blasted Vanilla Ice’s “Ice, Ice Baby.” Some students along the parade route answered the administration’s call for kids to dress up like their teachers.
