“Mummy” Litzinger visits the JH on Halloween PDF Print E-mail
Written by Carolyn Crawford   
Tuesday, 04 November 2014 12:12

Periods one and two,

he’ll be coming for you.

He will walk the halls,

perhaps running into walls.

He is wrapped in T.P.,

and brings all of us glee.

He is no dummy,

but he is our mummy!

If the description fits,

it must be Mr. Litz!


The Junior High Interact Club sponsored the “Mummify-a-Teacher” fundraiser, once again this Halloween.  This has become a fun and popular event for the school, and the students look forward to seeing a teacher dressed up like a mummy.

            The students at the junior high donated their spare change to see their teacher of choice wrapped in toilet paper and paraded around the school. The student body was able to collect a generous amount to donate during two weeks before Halloween. It became a tight race between Mr. Litzinger and Officer Woods.  All teachers and staff made this event fun for our students, and Mr. Amadio even campaigned against Mr. Litzinger as a last stitch effort to sway votes.  It definitely paid off, because Mr. Litzinger was chosen by the students to be this year’s mummy.

            Mr. Litzinger was a great sport and allowed a few Interact students to cover him completely in toilet paper like a mummy.  He walked around the junior high and stopped into all classrooms to say, “Happy Halloween!” Mr. Litzinger even “scared” our students in the hallways. Everyone had a laugh, even Mr. Litz!

            The Junior High Interact Club would like to thank all students, staff, and teachers (especially Mr. Litzinger) for participating in the event and adding to our Halloween fun!  We cannot wait to see who our mummy will be next year!
