Thank you to all the 4th and 5th graders for their attention during our special animal program this past Thursday. The Hallman family of one of our th grade students came in to share some of their special animals with us. We took a trip around the world and learned about Pygmy Hedgehogs and Ball (Royal) Pythons from Africa. The Island of New Caledonia was our next destination where we learned about crested geckos. The red foot tortoise and the Chilean Rose Tarantula were from South America. We also learned about hooded rats and a silver phase Red Box from right here in North America. It gave the students an up close and hands on experience with animals you don't always get to see.
