All Saints Episcopal School continued its 40th anniversary celebration by throwing its biggest homecoming event ever -- bringing its entire community together Friday for a day full of festivities.

Every student in the school participated in the school’s first parade, and most of the parents helped with planning over the last year.

Parents Jacqueline Cavender and Renna Embry headed the spirit committee.

“All Saints relies on volunteers,” Cavender said. “Every parent is willing to help out.”

Each class had its own themed costumes, from dozens of tiny Elvis Presley impersonators to the Ghostbusters.

“It took every ounce of every person,” Embry said.

New Head of School Mike Cobb was immediately on board with the idea when he was approached with the plans.

“Mike is unbelievable,” Embry said. “He really wants to build community spirit.”

Cobb kept the momentum going, leading the students into a pep rally immediately after the parade.

Volunteers then began setup for the game night festivities.

The school also hosted a pre-game cook out, trunk or treat and concert by red dirt musician Zach Stone, all leading up to the big game against Prince of Peace.
