The talk of our school for the next little while is definitely going to be what happened at the end of today. The guys of the school are definitely going to be in the girls’ good books for a while now. Shall I continue? Seeing as I have nothing else to talk about, I think I shall.
About five or ten minutes from the end of the school day, Mr. G stopped his class and asked all the girls to go into the lunch room and sit in the seats provided there. He then went into the other classroom and asked the same of the girls there. All the guys came into the Grade 11-12 classroom, and we put into action the plan we had come up with over a week ago. Mr. G had gone out and bought yellow roses (yellow symbolizes friendship, apparently) – one for each girl there, including one for Mrs. Houtman. He wrote all the names down on paper and we each picked one, with Jonathan and myself having to pick two since Mrs. Houtman was one extra and Bas was sick today.

Mr. Gillmore came into the room a minute or two later and started talking about all the wimpy schools that close at the first sign of bad weather, so I knew that school was still on. Anyways, I sat there in the room alone for about 15 or 20 minutes before anyone else got there. It was looking pretty pathetic with about three or four people in total just before school started for the day. When it finally did start, we had nine people. Yes, nine people in total for all four grades. That’s even more pathetic than our school is normally, with twenty-two.
Bethany Stewart brought in oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, which were delicious and just made my Valentine’s Day that much better. Bethany and Jordan showed up at lunch, bringing the grand total to eleven people for the day.…Continue Reading
