Dunbar Elementary School

Dedicated to excellence in education

Student Life


    To celebrate students’ love for reading, Atlanta Public Schools’ Dunbar Elementary held a Storybook Character Parade. The parade started at the Dunbar Recreation Center and ended at the school.

    Dunbar students, parents, staff and members of the community were invited to dress as a character from their favorite book, and bring the book to participate in the parade. Maynard Holbrook Jackson High School’s Marching Jaguars also participated.

    During the parade, students received books along the parade route that were donated to the school by community partners.
