Because Punxsutawny Phil will probably be checking for his shadow in his hometown in Pennsylvania, Brookings residents will be depending on Thomas the Tank engine to determine the duration of winter.

Thomas will be pulling cars around the tracks at the Stout Mountain Railway Garden from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. today (Feb. 2), which is Groundhog Day, the day the rodent pokes his head out and, if he sees his shadow, predicts there will be six more weeks of winter.

Brookings-Harbor High School students have been busy writing, drawing, composing and painting pieces that “describe a moment in their life when they needed help, and someone reached out and looked for the best in them and helped them to see it” for a  Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) assignment. 

For the assignment, students were encouraged to acknowledge others who helped them recognize their strengths. 

“We felt that students needed an opportunity to be able to write about a time when somebody did something positive for them and really take a look at those people who create a positive school environment and look for the best themselves and others to encourage all students to look for the best in themselves and all others,” BHHS PBIS coordinator Michelle Prudden said.
