Well, guys, you may have come into 2016 thinking it was just another year, nothing special about it at all. However, that would be considered incorrect because this year is a Leap Year which means we get one extra day at the end of this month. You may now be plagued with thoughts of what to do all those extra hours and my suggestion to you is to do something extra in our CCH community.
It is not too late to join a club such as Athletic Leadership or Student Council. You and a group of friends could come out and support the arts by watching Beauty and the Beast that is running from March 3-March 12. You could also help out the crew or front of house for the play. Be sure to take part in the CCH Blood Drive throughout the month of March. (You have a whole extra day to create more blood!) There are always basketball games or badminton matches to watch, and keep an eye open for tryouts for baseball and slo-pitch.
For one last way to take advantage of the extra day a leap year provides, why not learn some facts about leap year?
- There is a leap year on the years that are divisible by 4. The exception to this (Isn’t there always an exception?) are on the years that are also divisible by 100 and not divisible by 400. There are even more rules, but that’s too much math.
- It was Julius Caesar who introduced leap years.
- It is also St. Oswold’s Day, who was an archbishop of York.
Happy extra day!
