Designated Easter bunnies scattered hundreds of chocolate eggs throughout W.L. McLeod elementary school Friday for the school’s annual school-wide hunt.

Everywhere the eye could see, little tin foil wrapped chocolate eggs on book shovels, pictures frames, toys, carts, stairs, railings and the floor were almost completely covered. Principal Libby Hart announced over the P.A. system students are to stay with their buddy and, with the sound of her go, a whoosh of kids emerged from their class rooms.

A Tsunami of eager children flooded the library, hallways and common room areas in search of all the hidden eggs.

Many kids were lucky enough to find a large egg which contained a piece of paper that coordinates to a prize such as longer computer time or a special lunch with Libby.

“This is definitely the most eggs we’ve ever had,” Wanda Nemethy said, teacher.

All the kids got chocolate, all of them smiling.
