Fay, Fay Go Away!
I don't think any of us were expecting to have a "holiday" after just two days of school, but Tropical Storm Fay had other ideas! On Wednesday and Thursday we wondered why we were out of school even though the sky looked dark and gray (we were out because some of the schools had to be opened as shelters), but on Friday we found out just what Fay had in store. Mrs. Timmons front yard looked like she had just moved to lakefront property as the road flooded over. However, the waters were soon back to normal and she didn't even lose electricity. How did Fay treat you? If your child is a little crazy from being inside for too many hours this past week, encourage them to draw a picture or write about of how their yard or house looked after Fay or what they did while the lights were out or any other interesting "adventures" of the past few days. Bring these to school so we can all share on Monday. Fay is just a reminder of how powerful Mother Nature can be... Stay safe. Stay dry!
