This is hands down one of the favorite days in the Orca class. We always hold Pirate Day during the last week of school. Everyone dresses up, even the Teaching Parents! We choose our pirate names, and then take a pirate portrait. This fierce pirate is Stinky Beard.
Don't be afraid! It's Captain Butterfly!
This fellow was involved in a sword fight and has a big scar on his forehead. Awesome mustache, too!
Captain Gold knows what he's after.
Ocean Smell found it kind of hard to look fierce,
but not this scary fellow, Gray Beard,
and his cohort, Captain Hook. Watch out!
After following the clues to the hidden treasure box and treasure map, we headed out to our ship. Hoist those sails!
We flew the Jolly Roger as a warning to other ships on the sea.
Land ho! Everyone to the row boat. Stroke! Sroke! It's hard work heading to shore on Skull Island.
Let's check the map to see where we need to go.
Through the jungle, and the Skeleton Tree, past Dead Man's Hut, and up Snake Mountain, and then down the waterfall.
Finally we found X marks the spot. Time to start digging!
One of the crew stands guard.
It's hard work, but we gather almost 200 pieces of pirate gold to be shared amongst us.
This pirate was brave enough to eat a lemon to ward off scurvy.
And, we had fresh coconut. What a day, right mateys?
