According to numerologists, the sequence of 2s in the date 2-22-22 – also known as “Twos Day” – are “angel numbers.”
Jennifer Schultz hopes her Brookfield High School seniors – the Class of ’22 – were seen as angels as they passed out treats to their favorite teachers and staff members on that day.
Schultz, the senior class adviser and high school secretary, used the day to briefly lift the students’ noses from the grindstone, single out the impending accomplishment for most of the class – graduation – and to further the message of the BHS 27 Days of Be the Change Challenge, a community service initiative.
“This is just something to celebrate you being a senior and almost being out of here,” Schultz told the class, shortly after they had assembled for doughnuts and drinks during the first period of the day.
Each senior chose a favorite teacher or staff member and wrote up why that person had had a positive impact on his or her life. The students delivered their notes and doughnuts.
The teachers expressed humility and gratefulness for the recognition. High school math teacher Lisa Henry showed surprise and appreciation as Alison Breighner interrupted her class to deliver the goodies.
Hugs, thank yous and handshakes were plentiful.
Middle school English teacher Miriam Necastro posted photos on Facebook of herself with the students who had honored her.
“These senior babies of mine made my day, and probably my week, with a tasty donut, thank-you notes that made me emotional, and hugs,” Necastro said.
