The auxiliary teams marched in the Starlight Parade on Saturday, Dec. 2 at 6:30 p.m. on Third Avenue in Chula Vista to represent the school in the holiday parade for the community.

All of the auxiliary teams were signed up by auxiliary advisor Twylah Tarkington to march in the nighttime parade. They were joined by the JROTC.

Participating in events like this show that these teams are part of the community. The event featured several other school groups, bands, and vendors as a way to welcome the beginning of the holiday season.

The auxiliary teams marched for about an hour for as far as two miles, and are required to be smiling and holding a certain pose, occasionally performing moves that correspond to their teams along the way.


“It was a fun experience,” said Jenella Mariano, senior and first year member of the auxiliary Drill Team. “There were kids singing Christmas carols and adults dressing up as different characters. Being surrounded by everyone in that environment really made me look forward to the holidays even more.”


This is auxiliary’s second parade of the school year and are looking forward to another in February to celebrate Black History Month after their first competition in January.
