2nd graders making Funny Faces

When we got to school on the second day of the year, the power was out!  It was a pretty crazy day, but so many parents, teachers, administrators, PTA members, electricians, and businesses worked together to make the day successful.   The teachers taught, entertained, and encouraged their students all day, and the students endured with positive attitudes.

Miss Dooley's class decided to learn “underwater” with battery powered lights in their classroom.   They celebrated at the end of the day by having some Swedish fish and a dance party under the sea.

We are inspired by the way all of our students and staff members reacted to these circumstances and grateful for the help from so many people (and grateful to Rocky Mountain Power for fixing the problem as quickly as they did!), but what a fun memory for our students - the day the power was out at school.
