The entire student body and staff looks forward every year to the annual Guardian Angel Dinner Auction. Among the auction items at the February 25 event were Principal of the Day, Secretary of the Day, Teacher of the Day, Cooks of the Day, and a VIP student of the week. The bidding on these items usually goes pretty high. The parents/grandparents of Traci Hency (principal), Camryn Lynch (secretary), John Crippen (teacher), Katie Webb (who chose Kennedi McVay to be her co-cook), and Seth Reed (VIP) were the high bidders this year. On March 29, the substitutes took their positions in their prized spots. Hency, as principal, decreed a dress down and flip flop day and a no homework day. Additionally, students did not have to sit at assigned spots or tables in the lunch room and they also got to play bingo after lunch. As secretary, Lynch helped out in the office and assisted students in walking over to the public school for classes. Crippen helped Ann Whistler in instructing her math and history classes. Webb and McVay adorned aprons and chef hats, and aided Mrs. Robin and Mrs. Diebold in making dumplings for the entire student body, faculty, and staff. The food was delicious. As VIP student of the week, Reed enjoyed several perks, including sitting at the teacher’s desk, being exempt from a test of his choosing, and enjoying special snacks and beverages. Read more
In math, Pi is equivalent to 3.14, so March 14 is considered “Pi Day.“ At Guardian Angel School in Oran, it is also known as Pie Day. Ann Whistler, math teacher, had the eighth grade students tell interesting facts about pi to all the students. Next, the students get to go through a line and pick out a piece of pie to eat. The pies, napkins, cups, plates, juice and forks were all brought in by the students in Whistler’s fourth-eighth grade math classes. Everyone at school looks forward to Pi (Pie) Day each year.
