Devious! Green! Irish! Sneaky! What’s that now? That’s right a Leprechaun. Leprechauns have been terrorizing children for decades. It’s time to put an end to the children's terrorization. Who was up for this task? KIWI (Kind Individuals with Integrity) club to the rescue! On Tuesday, March 15, a few members of the club took on the impossible task of capturing leprechauns when they ventured over to Slinger Elementary with a load of craft supplies to make Leprechaun traps with 5K students. Four kindergarten classes, taught by Lloyd, Alton, Gentz, and Saeger, had the opportunity to collaborate with members of the KIWI club to make traps to catch those keen little Leprechauns. The experience for the little ones was rewarding as they utilized their energy, creativity, and kindness. The traps, set up at the high school to hopefully catch some Leprechauns, will allow KIWI members to bring findings back to the elementary school on Friday. St. Patrick's Day is a national holiday, and with any holiday, kindness should be spread. That is exactly what KIWI club did with the kindergarteners to hopefully make their holiday a little more fun than usual.
