(WSYR-TV) — Normally, students would have worn their Halloween costumes to school and paraded around. But this year, two teachers from Minoa Elementary are bringing the treats to the kids who have been learning from home all year.
For only the second time this year, students had the chance to see their teachers in-person as they got Halloween donuts and candy.
Kindergarten was the first year for me last year and I came because I just wanted to be and to see and to nurture those little faces. It’s difficult every day to see them just on a screen and not be able to get close to them and help them through their learning and their feelings.Cindy Todd — Minoa Elementary Kindergarten teacher
“We like the face to face as much as possible. You know, it’s hard only seeing them on a screen. So, it’s nice to get a couple of minutes to see them face to face. We also were checking in, dropping off school work. It’s hard. We try to plan far out and it’s also an opportunity to catch them up on school work,” explained Ashley Grimes, Minoa Elementary Kindergarten teacher.
The teachers hope that next year they can celebrate together in a classroom instead of through a screen.
