Snofest 2020 Dress up/Activity Days:

 

Clue #1:

Let’s play a game this Snofest week

It’s a variant of good old hide and seek

I’ve hidden a medallion that must be found

It might be on the ceiling of maybe the ground

It could be inside or outside or perhaps high or low

You’ll need to look hard, so on your marks. Get set. Go.

 

Tuesday, Jan. 28                     Camo Day

JV/V Girls at 6:00 at Legacy

C/JV/V Boys at 4:45 at LP vs. Legacy

 

Clue #2:

I’ll give you a hint; you won’t need your mitts.

Just listen to the clues and use your wits.

You all walked past the medallion yesterday.

Perhaps you were distracted, but who’s to say.

Today your task should be to silently look.

Could it be in the halls or maybe a book?
