Hermon-Dekalb Students Go Wild For Reading
Wildlife was front and center in the reading experiences of elementary students at Hermon-Dekalb Central School last week.
The youngsters got a hands-on look at everything from Madagascar hissing cockroaches and other live animals to a taxidermy zoo.
And throughout the week, they took time from their school day to sit down and enjoy a good book.
"I have not seen them this excited in a long time," said Mary Jo Potter, Hermon-Dekalb Central School Library Aide.
"It's just nice to have something different than the every day projects that they do and the every day lessons," she said.
In addition to the reading fun, students took part in competitions like casting with a fishing pole and pin the tail on the whitetail deer.
