Seaway High News

Merry Christmas Seaway! Can you say HOLY SNOW? Just kidding, there was a dust over the green grass. It’s December and there is absolutely no snow. WHY! This is simply outrageous!  Whether you love it or hate it, snow just completes December. We can only hope for a bright white Christmas! 

Monday was our first snow day of the year! (If you even want to call it that. It was more of an ice day!) Hopefully there is more snow/ice days throughout the year as it was a nice break for both students and staff!

Seaway had a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board outside of the cafeteria for the annual Christmas concert! The audition times were on December 13 and 14 during MSIP.  Meet or Beat the Challenge started on December 3rd and ends on December 17th. Meet or Beat the Challenge is when each MSIP class brings in certain items such as, shampoo, deodorant, canned food items, etc. and the food/toiletries are donated to the South Dundas Food Bank.  Whichever MSIP class brings in the most things, wins a movie and a pizza party! There seems to be a tight race between Mme. Martin’s class and Mrs. Gilmour’s class. Good Luck to all!

To liven up the last week of school until Christmas Break, Student Council has made up a spirit week! Monday was Red & Green Day, when students wore green and red to get in the spirit! Tuesday was Christmas Character Day and, as I write this, I wonder if anyone will be coming as Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus! Maybe Rudolph will appear too.  Wednesday, today, is Ugly Christmas Sweater Day. Did your grandma ever give you one for Christmas? If not run over to her house and take one! Thursday will be (W)Rapper Day, I might dress as a Christmas present… hm…! Friday will be PJ day! Get those nice and toasty warm footy pyjamas! If only I had some… Friday we will also be having a Christmas Concert! I am totally looking forward to that! Actually… come to think of it… I’m not, because my gym class has to perform a dance, great!  It should be a great concert! Good luck to all performing!

Seaway Spartans wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hope everyone gets what they want and give more than they should! Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.  Here are some words to live by:

“To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” – Calvin Coolidge.
