Sr. Kay went to her first parish event on Saturday night-Mardi Gras Dinner put on by the ladies of the parish.
Valentine's Day was celebrated with reds and pinks. The Student Council sponsored a contest. The class with the most red and pink won a large box of chocolates. It was a tie between Grades 5 & 6 with Grades 3 & 4.
The insurance inspector from the Diocese of Tucson came for his annual inspection. His first question was-"Do you check for scorpions on the playground?" I said no I don't-should I? He said, yes, some schools have the scorpions especially in the sand. I told him I keep a look out for snakes but not scorpions but I will for now on.
Besides being Valentine's Day we also celebrated the 100th Birthday of the State of Arizona-one of the younger states in the continental U.S. My 1st/2nd grade teacher made an AZ cake for the party.
We also had a surprise on Valentine's Day and AZ's 100th Birthday-hail. Around 1:00pm the sun was shining and the wind was fiercely blowing and the hail came down for about 8 minutes. A new sight!
