School Gets Day Off For Good Weather
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Bellingham Christian School in Washington State cancelled classes yesterday because of good weather. Principal Bob Sampson decided that because no snow days were used this year, students could take off to enjoy a rare weather event in those parts: a day without rain. The principal wrote on the school's Web site: Yes, it's a Sunday. Wahoo! The message accompanied a photo of the principal on his motorcycle leaning back and giving a thumbs up.
