SES students celebrate their super heroes

The corridor leading up to the gym had been decorated in honour of their favourite super heroes as SES celebrated super hero day.

The corridor leading up to the SES gym had been decorated and resembled a space from one of the Marvel super hero movies as staff and students spent working on the walls and even decorating the gym in honour of their favourite super heroes as they celebrated super hero day on Wednesday and Thursday, March 23-24.

Led by principal Sharon Fischer, dressed in Superman’s garb, the students had a fun time and enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

“I had absolutely no reason for the Superman costume, said Fischer. “It was available for the taking and because I had been the Hulk on Wednesday, I changed it up a bit. Since I was doing bus supervision I just wore the cape and joked with the students that I was ‘Super-visor.'”

Mrs. Poapst and Mrs. Neitz, phys-ed teachers, put on activity days at SES each year. In the past, there have been Olympic themes, Duck Dynasty days and Medieval days, besides other fun themes before that. This year the Super Hero theme was chosen.

“The days are for fun but there is always a lesson and this year the lesson was that there is a super hero in all of us and you don’t need to have a cape to be a hero,” added Fischer. “You are a hero by the things you do, the choices you make, and the way you treat people.”

In the gym staff and students all worked together to show the Joker that there is a better way, and in the end the Joker learned that and received the cape.

“We also tie it into the school’s 7 Habits – the Leader in Me program – essentially the importance of doing the right thing even when no one is watching,” said Fischer. “It was fun and the students loved taking part in all the different events.”
