Weekly Ticker - January 29, 2017

Week of January 29, 2017


  • Are we in for a long winter? This Wednesday, February 1, all students will make their prediction whether or not Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow on Groundhog Day (February 2) by how they dress. If your child thinks Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow and return to the ground for more winter, your child may wear warm, snuggly winter attire to school on February 1. If your child predicts the groundhog will not see his shadow, spring clothing items may be worn on this day. We will collect and calculate the data of our prediction. On Groundhog Day, we will compare our prediction with Phil’s behavior and celebrate in the Dining Hall with hot and cold treats.
