No School at Bethany Middle School -oh, my!

I feel so bad for all those families in Bethany who had their power knocked out as a result of the freak nor'easter that hit New England this past Saturday, October 29. Because all of Bethany is without power, we have not been able to hold classes. Hopefully, power will be restored soon, and our family of learners -students, teachers, administrators, and staff- will be back and raring to go.
I imagine we will still have the judging of the best decorated lockers for Halloween. One of the students in Mrs. Habersang's Student Council group made a great poster advertising the contest.

Judging was supposed to take place on Friday, but it was changed at the last minute to Monday. Little did we know what lay in store for us.
When I left on Friday, I thought about touring around the school with my camera, but I decided to wait until Monday since some students were not finished. Little did I know that we'd not be in school on Halloween or the day after or the day after that. I did get one locker and some shots of teacher's doors, however.

I also did a poster for my door -using multiple layers in Photoshop. I think it came out pretty neat:
Finally, when I left school on Friday afternoon, I took one last picture of our fantastic, spooky tree at the end of the parking lot. It was hard to shoot because the sun was behind it, nearly blinding me. Who knew that 24 hours later, it would be covered with snow! I wish I had a picture of that!
So - a belated Happy Halloween to all. Here's hoping we'll have an easy winter - and very few snow days!!!!
