There were a few students from Ms. Thomson's (Audrey's) who came to me last week and asked if they might put together a bit of a haunted house. Student initiated events are some of my favourite ones and this was no exception. I asked them to get a few of the parents involved throughout the week, assisting them with ideas and decorations. And that they did... much thanks to the parents.
All went well and most students were told that the "dark" house was the most scary one, so if they chose to go in only one house, that was just fine.
Hearty congratulations go out to the organizers. They did a great job, and I hope they learned from their efforts.
Tomorrow some of the grade 6 and 7 students will be heading up to Ted Dixon Park in Sechelt to play in the annual Sugar Bowl soccer tournament run by one of my old teaching buddies, Jim Grey. It is always a wonderful way to burn off the post Hallowe'en energy.
Thanks to Ms. Anderson and parent volunteers for getting the students up there and to Ms. Kennedy for providing a program for those students who have made it their choice not to go this year.
