HAVE A WEE BIT 'O FUN
Of course, everyone will want to wear green on St. Patrick's Day. It's also a great opportunity to plan a social gathering. Why not send out your invitation on a snack-sized box of Lucky Charms cereal?
Serve fun green food items. (Remember, you can make just about anything green by simply adding food coloring.) Menu items might include
[content block] LUCKY POT OF GOLD SEARCH
Create cut-out pots of gold (sample template) and put a different staff member's name one each one. Place in mailboxes along with this poem:
A little green man got in here last night,Hide the pots all over the school. When the staff member finds the pot with his or her name, that person gets a prize.
He brought pots of gold to stir your delight.
Everyone gets one; no one's left out
But you must find yours -- they're hidden about.
Locate the pot that bears your name
And you'll be a winner of this game.
Take it to an administrator of your choice
To receive a prize that will make you rejoice!

GRIN AND SHARE IT
An Irishman named O'Malley proposed to his girl on St. Patrick's Day. He gave her a ring with a synthetic diamond.
The excited lass showed it to her father, a jeweler, who took one look at it a pronounced it a fake.
Upon learning it wasn't real, the young lass returned to her future husband. She protested vehemently about his cheapness.
"In honor of St. Patrick's Day," he smiled, "I gave you a sham rock!"
Drive your staff happy!
