Snow, snow and more snow. During these last couple weeks with no school due to lots of snow a few students stepped up and came to school, but not for the usual reasons. Students came to school on January 11 to help move teachers into their new classrooms.
On the night of January 10 principal Dr. Matt Smith received a call from Superintendent Dr. Steven Chancellor. Smith stated, “The night I got a call from the Chancellor, he had asked me if I would want to move the teachers in their new classrooms and I said we could make that work.” After that phone call, Smith started thinking how they would be able to move all that stuff. He first called a few teachers and asked them if they could come in on the snow day to move their classrooms.
Once Dr. Smith got a hold of the teachers he started to rack his brain to find ways to move everything. Smith then started thinking of the students and teachers that live close by.
Senior Morgan Ross said, “Dr. Smith asked students that lived relatively close to the school and that were reliable and would work effectively.” Smith asked Morgan Ross and her brother Ethan Ross, a freshman , to come into school since they live really close to the school. Cole Higginson, a Sophomore , commented, “My mom got the call and I don't mind helping when I can if I'm needed”. Cole’s mom is a teacher at the school who was moving into one of the new classrooms.
Overall there were 12 students that came to the school on their snow day to help out. Dr. Smith commented saying, “I thought if we started around 8 to 8:30 a.m. we could be done around noon and we could get pizza for the students. Once we started at around 8:30 we got done at 10:15.” Dr. Smith was very pleased and impressed by how fast it had taken them to move those teachers into their new classrooms.
