Principal for the Day
by Maeve Stokes
On February 7, I was Principal for the Day. Some of the things I did were: I made the announcements on the loudspeaker. Then I sorted the mail. I walked around the school to say “ hi” to all the classes, I got to answer all their questions. I read the 2nd grades persuasive essays. After that 2 friends were invited to eat lunch with me,we got Pizza Peddler. It’s fun and busy at the same time.I’d certainly would do Principal for the Day again!
Principal for the Day

On February 19, I was Principal for Day. I ate lunch with my BFF’s Chloe, Ainsley and Kaylee. Mrs.Malseed and I walked around the whole school. I met all the grades. I saw that there is a new 4th grade student. I worked at Mrs. Malseed’s desk in her office. We checked the 2 grade essays and wrote replies on the back. Now I’m writing this. That is not all of it, there is a lot more. I think that today was a great day.

Ceili Dance Camp
Come and learn a ceili! Ceili dances are traditional Irish team dances. This camp will teach students traditional ceili dances that can be seen performed around the world at Irish events and competitions. In addition to learning ceili dances, this camp will focus on team building skills. Campers will complete activities such as scavenger hunts, hula hoop challenges, and more to foster the skills required to work as a group!
