On Tuesday October 26th,   an announcement came over the JSEC loudspeaker and broadcasted to students that Tuesdays afternoon school sports and activities were cancelled due to an impending Nor’ easter that was about to hit our little state.   As I looked out the window it really looked like it was raining hard as the wind was picking up speed and leaves were blowing all over the place outside.  For the first time in a long time there was concern due to what could happen due to this storm.  One of the first things I thought of was if they would cancel school on Wednesday and how much distance learning work would be assigned.

Due to the storm, lots of neighboring houses lost power, there was lots of traffic, and many of the kids came to school wet, with umbrellas.  Many of those umbrellas umbrellas looked broken due to the wind taking hold of them during what I assume was caused by the windy journey to JSEC.  There didn’t seem to be as many students in class today with many students staying home.

Upon arriving to school the first thing I noticed was the brand new outdoor sign in the garden, designed by Ms. Garland and Mr. Gormley,  was flat out on the ground whose base look like it was cracked.  This made us feel bad because we know they put a lot of work on the sign.  People were having trouble coming to school because the winds were strong enough to make walking difficult and also blow things out of our hands.

“My power went out in my house”-Julius Castro

“I thought the weather was great for kite flying”-Alexis Delaurier

On somewhat of an off day today, suddenly a super friendly unicorn arrived in the morning and cheered up the students.  We discovered it was part of our neighboring schools spirit week.  The unicorn went up to students and everyone seemed to want to take a photo with the unicorn.  Upon taking a photo we discovered that inside the unicorn was the Principal of 360 High School, Kerri Tuttlebee.   We like that she added to our day and of course we took that moment to sneak in a unicorn group selfie!
