Each spring, a week or so before Easter, the students at my school are responsible for cleaning up outside around the school and around the village. Each grade level is assigned one part of town (for example, the soccer field, around the school, the cemetery, the location of a monument, etc.) and spend the afternoon getting things ready for the holiday.
Our Cleaning Day was this past Monday. Thankfully, it was a beautiful warm day and the work was completed in a couple of hours. I was assigned to be photographer and walked all around the village with our adjunct director and my site mate. It was the perfect afternoon to be outside (and I even got my first minor sunburn of the year!). While some of the older students waited for the tractor to come to pick up the brush that had been cleared, some of the students played volleyball with one of our older teachers (formerly the French teacher, she’s retired but still teaches Religion at the school).
