The event is reminiscent of the longstanding Ivy Day walk tradition at South Side High School, which also took place Wednesday morning.
At the end of both walks, seniors enjoyed special events or celebrations at their school. At Snider, seniors returned to the auditorium for the Nelson Awards, which were followed by the senior picnic and other special activities.
"They really have the perfect campus to do this," Krista Stockman, FWCS public information officer, said of the Snider send-off parade.
Snider's campus borders that of Glenwood Park Elementary, where many Snider seniors began their FWCS academic careers, Stockman said.
There already was talk among Snider staff at the end of the parade about expanding the route next year to include Lane Middle School, which is just east of Snider across Reed Road.
The expanded route would take many Snider students full circle through their elementary and middle school days and back to Snider to move on with the next phase of their lives.
