NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

The July 4th celebrations got kicked off early at Brooks Quinn Jones Elementary School in Nacogdoches Thursday morning.

Over 100 Pre-K and kindergarten students had their very own Independence Day Parade.
 Some students rode their bikes decorated in red, white, and blue. All the children are in the Bilingual Summer School which gives them a head start on the next grade. The parade provides a fun cultural lesson for all the children.

"For us we think it's important for our little ones to understand some of the traditions of our country,” said Kevan Webb, Nacogdoches ISD’s director of bilingual-ESL education “We actually turned this into a teaching unit. Our teachers of pre-k and kindergarten do a lot of different kinds of learning activities so that our little ones understand the significance of Independence Day."

Many of the parents marched with their children as they circled the campus. Afterwards everyone cooled off with popsicles and watermelon.
