The Wave - McDonogh School

The Wave

Everyone wants to take the bus home on the last full day of school so they can be part of "the wave." Before boarding the buses and heading for a window seat, students receive hugs from teachers and administrators. Then, the fleet of more than 25 McDonogh buses pulls out of the parking lot in a well-orchestrated dance to the sounds of honking, cheering, and clapping. Meanwhile, faculty lining the side of the road, wave farewell to the children who enthusiastically wave back, shouting "good-bye" from the bus windows.
