EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Students at Joshua Academy in Evansville got a welcome back parade Monday morning.

For the last two weeks, students have been on a hybrid two-day-a-week schedule.

On Monday, 100 kids in grades K-6 returned.

Each staff member chose a superhero name, and they cheered those students on.

Teachers and the members of the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity got the kids fired up for their first day.

“It’s all around our building. Posters everywhere and it talks about superpowers of giving back or helping or being kind. That’s our theme for the students,” said Arvenada McDonald, principal at Joshua Academy. “They tackle that superpower and that we’re always looking for ways to make this world and our lives better.”

They say this event was to send student encouragement to help get the school year off on a good start.

Joshua will be teaming up with the fraternity reading programs this year.
