El Paso, TX (KTSM) — A parade with a purpose in the lower valley.
130 kindergarten students at Sgt. Roberto Ituarte Elementary School marched along the school's track field in rockets, racecars and other vehicles built for the 4th annual Transportation Parade.
The goal of the event is to teach children how to get safely to school, whether they are walking or dropped off by their parents.
"It is a great opportunity for us to address traffic safety with our students," said Ituarte assistant principal Martha Crespo.
This is also a great opportunity to involved parents and the community.
