Carvajal Elementary School staff holds Fiesta-themed car parade to spread smiles among students

SAN ANTONIO – Carvajal Elementary School held a Fiesta-themed car parade to bring some joy to communities on the West Side in wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Although Fiesta is currently postponed until November 5-15 due to the virus, that didn’t stop teachers, administration and support staff with CES to decorate their vehicles with Fiesta-themed decorations and take to the streets to spread smiles among students as they stay at home to help lessen the spread of the virus.

COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the new virus, stands for coronavirus disease 2019. The disease first appeared in late December 2019 in Wuhan, China, but spread around the world in early 2020, causing the World Health Organization to declare a pandemic in March. The first case confirmed in the U.S. was in mid-January and the first case confirmed in San Antonio was in mid-February.
