On Sept. 9 Calgary woke up to about 3 inches of snow. I may live in the Great White North but this was too much! We had our Leadership kickoff retreat happening that day. One of the activities that day was happening on the field. So we adjusted. If it snows, make snowmen! Something that seemed like a downer turned out to be awesome. The students had so much fun seeing who could make the best snowman. There were some pretty creative snowmen. The best part is the great memories we made that day.
We will be taking this picture and putting it on a poster with the caption “If it snows, make snowmen!” and hanging it in the leadership classroom. What started out as kind of depressing now is a part of our program’s culture and history.
So here is hoping it doesn’t snow too soon on you, but if it does, make snowmen!
This is our Gr. 10 Leadership Class’s version of hallway swimming. We showed it at lunch in the cafeteria and got lots of smiles and positive connections. Enjoy and like a good leader feel free to copy and adapt it to your own school.
