Albuquerque school rewards students with snowball fight for getting through a difficult year
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Students at St. Therese School in northeast Albuquerque were treated to a snowball fight in May.
The school’s principal ordered 700 snowballs from Bahama Bucks to celebrate an end to an exhausting year.
"I’m still a child at heart," said Principal Donna Illerbrun. "And after the year, with such unprecedented challenges, I thought everybody loves a snow day."
The kids seemed to enjoy the unusual way to end a school year. Parents also thought it was a fun idea.
"It’s just a great way to end a very difficult school year, but the kids are adaptable. They’re resilient and they’re having a blast," said Michelle Martinez said.
