THE BRONX - Students and staff at St. Joseph's School for the Deaf are celebrating school spirit day today as the institution's 145th anniversary approaches.

Students marched behind a banner down Tremont Avenue, while drums and pom-poms helped them celebrate. Many were also wearing school colors for the parade.

This is the third time students and staff participated in a parade for spirit day. Even children in the pre-K class came out for a little while to show their school spirit.

St. Joseph's will have an official kick-off weekend for the anniversary celebration in September with a barbecue and banquet.
