BETHEL, Conn. -- Bethel High School seniors strolled down memory lane and connected with children following in their footsteps as they marched through the town's elementary schools on Thursday.

The seniors, who will graduate on Friday, June 10, donned caps and gowns and walked through the halls at Frank A. Berry and Anna H. Rockwell Elementary Schools.

Younger students enthusiastically greeted the seniors, slapping hands with them as they paraded through the schools they once attended. The seniors also hugged former teachers and administrators

The senior parade was established this year year to help motivate the younger students and strengthen the bond between younger and older students throughout the school system.
