How Schools Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is one of those unofficial holidays that everyone in the US, no matter their religion or nationality, loves to celebrate. It’s an excuse to wear green, decorate with shamrocks, and talk about leprechauns. So how are schools around the country marking this day? Here’s what schools and teachers said on Twitter about the celebrations at their schools.

Primary students in Endwell, NY learned about how colors can mix to create new ones, by mixing yellow and blue to make green.

Students at St. Roch School in Indiana marched in Indianapolis’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade despite the chilly weather!

The Little School in Minneapolis-St. Paul is doing rainbow painting, Irish jigs, and leprechaun hunts!

A bagpipe serenaded the students at Horbelt Elementary in Barnegat, NJ, while students at Central Elementary School in Great Meadows, NJ, got visited by a lamb!

Things didn’t go so well everywhere, though! One teacher’s class was destroyed by a rogue leprechaun, who they later had to set a trap for and catch!

If that trap didn’t work, they can always try a leprechaun trap from Kasson-Mantorville School in Minnesota.

Meanwhile, schools across the country are also celebrating St. Baldrick’s Day today, where students and staff shave their heads to help fight childhood cancer. Participating schools include Millikin High in Long Beach, CA; Courtland High School in Spotsylvania, VA; and New Trier High School in Northfield, IL. You ca learn more at the St. Baldrick’s Foundation website.

Finally, our own intrepid membership director, Shanna Morgason, has been visiting schools in Arkansas and spreading St. Patrick’s cheer.
