On October 4th, the Pirates pod threw a surprise baby shower for Mrs. Rice. Mrs. Rice is an seventh grade english teacher on the team of Mr. Dewhirst, Ms. Biggar, and Ms. Larrick. The event was held on Wednesday during mindfulness moments. It was a surprise party: teachers and students alike have been keeping the secret for the past week. The pirates pod room was set up with baby pink tablecloths with cookies and cupcakes (brought in by student) on the table.
When asked what she was most excited for being a mom, Mrs. Rice responded “I guess seeing the baby learn." Mrs. Rice is going on maternity leave from October 9th to January 2nd. We wish her the best on being a new mom, and cannot wait to meet baby Emma!
