Parachute routine a fun-filled tradition since 1975

The Tarkio Elementary Third Graders performed a parachute routine to “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses and “Rock & Roll All Nite” by Kiss during the EA vs. Mound City basketball games Friday night, February 9, 2018, in Tarkio. The parachute routine has been a fun-filled tradition since 1975. Started by P.E. teacher Nancy Barrett, third graders have looked forward to picking out music and performing in front of the crowd with the parachute generation after generation. One class even wore costumes, dressed as raisins performing their parachute routine to “I Heard It Through the Grapevine.” Mrs. Barrett said the parachute routine was always a highlight for the children and it’s been wonderful to see the tradition continue year after year.
