St. Patrick’s Day was a fun-filled day for LS students, who got to share in the cheer with free dress. All over campus, students wore green clothing, hats, face paint and other celebratory decorations.
Kindergarten teacher Gerry-louise Robinson’s homeroom students made special houses in which to house their personal leprechauns, which were actually photos of the students sticking their faces through a leprechaun cut-out.
The kids also heard Irish-themed stories such as “Jamie O’Rourke & the Big Potato,” “Finn & the Fairy of Tara” and “The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day.”
Colleen Lindsay, who also teaches kindergarten, had her homeroom students bring in various types of green gifts such as candy, coins and stickers. The night before St. Patrick’s Day, the kids made “leprechaun catchers” and set them out around campus, which by the next day had been pilfered of their “gold.”
