March Stormchasers

Saint Patrick’s Day

By Cheyenne Hogue

Cavalier Public school wears green for the special occasion! What is that occasion? Saint Patricks Day of course! This day is celebrated on March 17 and was originally celebrated in Ireland with religious services and feasts in honor of St. Patrick, one of Ireland's patron saints. The holiday has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, drinking and a whole lot of green. Most of the U.S. just know it as if you don’t wear green you’ll be pinched and if you find the end of the rainbow there will be a pot of gold with a small little guy known as a leprechaun protecting it. Belief in leprechauns probably stems from Celtic belief in fairies, tiny men and women who could use their magical powers to serve good or evil. They are little mischievous little creatures, but the little kids sure love the chocolate coins they receive on this day. Anyways… Happy Saint Patrick's day!

Reading Month

By Claire Hagen

As we all know reading month is the time when we get to dress up and do fun activities such as ‘Merica Monday, PTO family bingo, dress your future career, and Flashlight Friday. Highschoolers were also included in this, all High School English periods made posters of their favorite books. Even those who were not big fans of reading were out there sharing their favorite books. Another thing highschoolers got to do was buddy read with elementary. On the last day everyone gets to wear their pj’s to school and bring a snack for D.E.A.R. time. D.E.A.R. means drop everything and read, which is what every student will do on Friday. So in all reading months at Cavalier Public School was pretty fun for everyone.
