Twas four weeks till the break…

Twas four weeks till the break,
when all through the college,
some small things were stirring,
seeking new knowledge
Don’t know them from last year?
Here’s what’s in store…
Our elves, Paige and Read
are back at it once more!
With last year’s IDs
they knew what to do!
To the Library the skipped
to get them renewed!
And at the Library desk,
oh, something new and inviting!
Canned foods for overdue fines…
How thrilling! How exciting!
Looking to learn,
they planned sneaking to classes,
with gift bags in tow,
working hard for some passes!
With so much to do,
Paige made a decision.
“I’ll use tomorrow’s extended hours
in the Library for revision!”
Now the elves had arrived,
what should they study?
“Let’s try education
and reading to a buddy!”
On the way from the Library
the elves dropped by the centre
for student success,
with writing tips and coaching mentor!
The Library kiosk
was the next stop to be had,
where they booked study rooms
and searched for books that were rad!
With finals approaching,
a relaxing PAWS is sound!
Paige and Read heard about one…
Louie the therapy dog is coming to town!!
(and by town, we mean the Front Lounge of the Vera Bracken Library on Dec 6 from 12-1PM)
Hearing students talk of the databases’ might
They researched the Jewish Festival of Lights.
Celebrating one day of oil that lasted for eight,
the elves wish Happy Hanukkah to all on this date!
With assignments due shortly,
Read loaded up money.
“The campus self-serve printing option
is so simple it’s funny!”
With their printing credits ready
they felt quite at ease,
so they spent some time sitting
in the front lounge at peace.
While enlightenment takes longer
than the time they had free,
our elves call out happily
“Blessed Bodhi Day to thee!”
The extra hour last week
helped Paige out a lot!
This week Read will join her,
4-5 in the Library, for a thought!
This International Human Rights Day
the elves are proud to join in,
Declaring “Elves are for Human Rights!”
But do you know where yours begin?

The elves were quite pleased
with their health book collection…
though Read still ate too much
that he gave himself indigestion!
With a tummy-ache extreme from reading/eating experimentation,
Paige sought out some help for Read’s health tribulations.
Besides, they knew that in nursing their was talent to unleash…
though the equipment they needed always seemed just out of reach.
In VisCom they painted well into the night,
with even their still-life’s strung with bright lights!
Learning theories of color, design, and composition,
they thought some new paint worth a sleigh branding transition!
To the Library they raced
with their designs freshly sketched,
making vision into 3D reality,
hands and minds both outstretched.
With a few finals left, the break fast approaches…
there is one extended hour in the Library left before its passed.
Join the elves this Friday, till five, for studying time.
It will be merry and bright, holly jolly, and fine!
The elves rubbed their chins
as they took a step back,
diagrams filling up whiteboards
with awesome reindeer jet packs!
The elves entered the gym,
and man, were they psyched!
Before their eyes: the perfect space
for an epic snowball fight!!
As they finished their work
they realized their blunder…
“We haven’t checked in with Santa!
Surely he’s beginning to wonder!”
So they borrowed an OWL
for a virtual meeting,
And seeing familiar faces
they ushered a greeting!
Paige and Read let Santa know
about all the learning they had faced.
And, thanks to their business classes, pitched
that Santa’s workshop be made remote-based!
The elves learned today
what Pancha Ganapati observes;
a celebration with focus

on five realms to preserve!
This day is only the first,

four more will follow in tow…
love of family, friends, associates,

culture, and religion… all grow!!
At the end of the month,
their heads filled to bursting,
they headed to the Library
to do some soul searching.
With the campus soon closing
for the holiday rest
they relaxed in the Library,
restored and refreshed.
With all the fun that was had
they just knew they’d be back,
for these elves have a passion
for learning new facts!

Tune in all through December as more of Paige and Read’s Grand Adventure is told…
