From The Principal

I am so proud of our students and their efforts this year. Due to your commitment to our school, our students raised over $18,000!! The staff decided that during our crew meeting this past Wednesday would be be the big day, so I did it... ate a cricket. Well, not just one cricket, but two.

As luck would have it, the entire school was tuned into the announcement channel to have a great view of the bug munching... and literally as I was putting the bug in my mouth the technology shut off, leaving all of the students wondering if I really did it or if it was planned! Well, it wasn't planned, and it wasn't fun, but in fairness we got the announcements up and running again and I ate a second bug!!!

Then with a sneaky twist, Mrs. Langlois had the top school fundraiser Elise pull a teachers name out of the bucket....Ms. Glanert joined me in my bug eating feast. Needless to say she was a champ and way tougher than I was, not to mention a fantastic sport. The videos are posted on our Facebook page if you haven't gotten a chance to sneak a peek, please do!! It was a great day!
