Leprechaun Visits Kindergartners at May Moore


Kindergartners in teacher Tammy Cotrone’s class at May Moore began their St. Patrick’s Day with a green bagel breakfast, preparing for the annual visit from a mischievous “leprechaun” who moves things around their classroom, leaving footprints and notes.

“May Moore was in an uproar,” said Cotrone. “Everyone was looking for him.”

The excited students created traps beforehand to nab the disruptive green fairytale fellow, and hung signs all through the school hallways saying that the leprechaun had been spotted, but all they caught were letters and gifts.

“The children were very excited that the tricky leprechaun visited us many times during the day,” said Cotrone. “Although he made a mess out of our classroom and left little green footprints in our bathroom, on the floors and in the hallway leading into our room, he also left many special treats for the children. Despite setting up traps and asking the entire school be on the lookout, we didn't catch the leprechaun. Maybe next year!”
