These past weeks in Altario School, lots of things were found where they were not expected to be. Snow banks on the roads, student belongings scattered in our classrooms, and new faces in the hallways. On the first day of spring, buses arrived at noon to shuttle students home because of nasty road conditions. This was followed by a snow day as Hwy 12 was closed.
The previous week, leprechauns were on the loose in the elementary classrooms. In the Gr. 1, 2, 3 room, desks were overturned, leprechaun traps were sprung, and debris was scattered all over. There was even a creepy message left on the tape recorder that Miss Raya Roesler discovered! The Gr. 4, 5, 6 room was also vandalized by the wee folk. Mr. Kukurudza, principal, found strange things scrawled in his office, too, and is now advertising for a security guard on Kijiji. Finally, Altario Student Council sponsored a St. Patty’s spirit day on March 15 th. They sold Shamrock Floats, encouraged everyone to wear green, and organized a Pot of Gold treasure hunt.
Something else out of place, but welcomed, are two new faces in the elementary hallway. The ECS class is happy to have Sofiya Hotsul who has just moved to Canada from the Ukraine. Miss Jalissa Kelts will be with us for the next few weeks as our intern teacher in the elementary classrooms.
Next week we have meetings, an alien invasion, and a hunt. On March 26th at 7:00pm there will be the next parent council meeting, and on March 27th and 28th Alien Inline Skating is landing in our school to instruct us on the proper ways to rollerblade. The free family skate will be on the 27th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Finally, on Thursday March 28th the ASC will be holding its annual Easter egg hunt. Easter break will be from March 29th to April 7th. Hope everyone can find their Easter eggs in the snow banks.
This is Ashlyn McCormick signing off for now.
