DO­ING UP A CEL­E­BRA­TION AT PARK MANOR PS

The Woolwich Observer - - NEWS -

Stu­dents at Elmira’s Park Manor PS cel­e­brated last Fri­day af­ter meet­ing their fundrais­ing goals in the an­nual Terry Fox Run. Teacher Betty Bouw (bot­tom mid­dle) agreed to have her pony­tail shorn off in front of the whole school if stu­dents met their goal. De­spite the im­promptu hair­cut, the Park Manor teacher took to the new look well. Marnie McKen­zie (bot­tom right) vol­un­teered her­self for dodge ball tar­get prac­tice for a whole group of lucky stu­dents. Teacher Ron Slem­mon (mid­dle right) agreed to be tied to a pole and pelted with wa­ter bal­loons. Lend­ing his throw­ing arm for the oc­ca­sion was re­tired teacher Ken Lu­bert; amaz­ingly, the long-time gym teacher seemed to keep miss­ing his mark, pelt­ing the stu­dents be­hind Slem­mon with the wa­ter-filled bal­loons in­stead. Park Manor prin­ci­pal Shar­lene McHolm (bot­tom left) was not off the hook ei­ther. McHolm of­fered to kiss a barn­yard an­i­mal – a chicken named Derp – in front of the whole school if they met their fundrais­ing goals. Derp at least seemed to en­joy the at­ten­tion.
