Babies seem to be everywhere on campus this year. Luckily, they all belong to the teachers. First to have a child this year was language department head, Mrs. Nisselson and math teacher, Mr. Rubai. On September 28th, 2015, Anika Hila Rubai was born, giving Raphael a young sister to play with, and all of us another adorable fac-brat to gawk at. Next to join the trend of the incoming babies Mr. and Mrs. Boar’s second child. Julian Boar was born on October 25th, 2015, coming out of the womb with more hair on his head than his own dad has. Next, doubling the count, Ms. Zamah, the Arabic teacher, gave birth to twins on January 7th, 2016, the first of the New Year. The first boy, Saleen Abraham Zamah Usman was born on January 7th at 7:19pm, weighing in at 4 pounds 8 ounces. The second boy, Yassen Solomon Zamah Usman was born the same day at 8:06pm weighing in at 5 pounds 14 ounces. All of the aforementioned families were delighted as their new joys were brought into the world. No doubt they were left mildly sleep deprived after long nights with their newborns they had to come see our shining bright faces everyday. Watch out they will most like be soliciting babysitters left and right.
Some other important babies around to address, the sacs of flower plaguing our campus. Developmental Psychology teachers assigned classes in both fall and winter term to craft a baby out of a generic sac of flower and nylons. They are required to carry around the “baby” for about a week and document it both with pictures and writing in a journal that they will transfer into a baby book. By the mistreatment of these sacs of flower I hope each and every student has been dissuaded from the prospect of teen pregnancy. If the project accomplishes one thing, I would hope It would for sure be that. I speak for most of the Loomis population when I say I am glad this project ends soon and I will no longer have to watch my friends sacs of flower and treat them like live babies.
