While Holtville Hal was looking for his shadow on Groundhog Day, high school students shadowed the district’s elementary school teachers and principals during Groundhog Shadow Day.
Under the direction of work study coordinator Christine Compagnino, students interested in pursuing a career in education were placed with elementary school teachers and principals at Forest Lake, Mandalay and Wantagh elementary schools to receive a better understanding of what is expected of a classroom teacher.
During the day, the students were given lunch, sponsored by the PTA, where they could discuss what they had learned in the classroom.
