Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Friday will mark Spirit Day and the Teacher Olympics, when students will dress in the school colors of green and white and cheer on their favorite teachers in different events such as a paper bag race and a trivia contest. On Saturday, the week will conclude with a spaghetti dinner and theme tray auction in the school gym, with tickets sold from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. and dinner from 3 to 7 p.m. Students are also collecting pennies to donate to the SPCA throughout the week.
Politowski said she didn’t want the events to focus only on the younger students.
“We’re not just early childhood, and I think it’s important for everyone to see the bigger picture, making people realize that they do have a choice with education,” she said. “We have a small school and a tight-knit community, and I think that’s’ very, very important. There are some kids who do well in a big pond, but there are students who thrive in a smaller community and they really get to shine.
“They do have a choice, and we celebrate that.”Managing Editor John Hopkins contributed to this report.
