School’s out for summer at Little Falls – By Dan Rankin

Yesterday morning on the last day of school, Little Falls Public School held an assembly to recognize some of the school’s hardworking students and faculty. Some students read a poem for retiring longtime Little Falls custodian and “Food Fairy” Donna Dickson, who had worked a combined 31 years at North Ward, Arthur Meighen and Little Falls schools. A number of students were presented plaques and medals as recipients of the “Principal’s Award of Student Leadership,” and student lunchroom, Kindergarten and milk helpers were thanked. A student presentation was also made for Grade 6 teacher Bobbi-Sue Scott, spelling out the letters in “M-R-S. S-C-O-T-T.”
Near the end of the assembly, principal Helen Brockman congratulated the Grade 6 graduating class, saying that, though she knew she wasn’t supposed to pick favourites, this year’s grade six class was hers, for their dedication to volunteering and many other reasons. “You never know what this Grade 6 class will do next, she said.”
Moments later, it was that same graduating class who had jumped to their feet, dancing wildly and encouraging all their fellow students to join in and take part in their “flash mob.”
“See what I mean?” laughed Brockman.
