Students and teachers at St. Patrick Catholic Academy in Bay Ridge got a jump on Easter Sunday by participating in the annual Easter Hat Parade in the school auditorium on March 31.

Everyone could take part in the parade, as long as they were wearing a custom-made hat!

A fun twist on traditional bonnets, the hats worn by the kids were tributes to the Easter season and were decorated with eggs, marshmallows, flashing lights, church replicas, religious messages, bunny ears and just about anything else the creative kids could think of to fit on top of their heads.

Each class lined up and marched around the auditorium inside the school at 401 97th St. to model their creations for a panel of judges. Winners for Most Creative Hat were selected from each grade level. The winners were rewarded with baskets and stuffed bunnies.

The big winners were: Annabelle Lee, Kindergarten; Jack Fraser, Grade 1; Ivan Abboud, Grade 2; Ava Bowes, Grade 3; Allan Lankamer, Grade 4; Jackie Grande, Grade 5, Kristen Kupper, Grade 6; Chris Glynn, Grade 7; and Nasser Grant, Grade 8.

Academy Principal Andrea D’Emic, who also wore a custom Easter hat, congratulated the students on their creativity and also reminded them of the religious significance of the Easter holiday.
