Sports Center

Friday was a different kind of casual day at St. Mary’s Home. SECEP’s Spirit Week at St. Mary’s Home finished up with Sports Day, a chance for SECEP and St. Mary’s staff to show off jerseys and T-shirts from their favorite teams/schools/athletes:

Carmen Gerena, executive assistant to the CEO

Danielle Hunn, SECEP liaison

Karen Roberson and Vette Muriel, teaching assistants

Teaching assistant Lauryn Harris, teacher Kim Curll, teaching assistant G. Reed

Reelin’ in the Years

Today was Blast from the Past Day, part of SECEP’s continuing Spirit Week. Folks at St. Mary’s Home reached into the back of their closets — in some cases, way back — to dress up to represent various decades.

The 80s seemed particularly popular:

Tom Dvorak, St. Mary’s facilities department

Suzanne Eason, supervisor of occupational therapy support services

In some classrooms, there was a mix of decades:

Teaching assistant Martha Robertson (50s), teaching assistant Nichold Price (70s), teacher Teresa Anderson (70s) and teaching assistant Stephanie Nixon (80s)

And then there was the 40s, as in 1540s: 

Larry Phillips, occupational therapy technician

Star Search

The stars descended upon St. Mary’s Home today, as SECEP’s Spirit Week continued with Hollywood Day. Throughout the building, people dressed up like their favorite celebrity or movie. A sampling:

Britney Spears (teacher Kelly Messina) and J.Lo (teaching assistant Denise Boone)

 Gloria Estefan (teaching assistant Jillian Hernandez), India.Arie (teaching assistant Nichold Price) and Flo from the Progressive Insurance commercials (teaching assistant Adriana Gibbs)

 Hannah Montana (teacher Melissa Knightes), with Greg

Marty, the zebra from the “Madagascar” movies (teacher Melinda Gilkey)

Maria from “The Sound of Music” (teaching assistant Donna Spence), Pippi Longstocking (teacher Katie Kaltenbach) and Mary J. Blige (teaching assistant Jean Walker)

The Cat’s Pajamas

SECEP’s Spirit Week at St. Mary’s Home continues. Today, people got a chance to be really comfortable. It’s Pajama Day, as demonstrated above by teaching assistant Carmen Perry, teacher sub Adriana Gibbs and teaching assistant Kimberly Ferebee.

Even principal Terry Lyle showed off her robe and slippers:
