For a couple days last week, some new playground equipment was installed on Woonsocket Elementary School’s playground area. A couple of rounded jungle gyms were installed along with a piece that looks similar to the see-saws or teeter totters that used to be found in most parks and on playgrounds “a few” years ago. They also added a short climbing wall and some fun chairs/stools to spin in. This equipment and installation would not have been possible without the hard work of the Woonsocket Elementary Parent Club who raised funds to make this and many other things possible for Woonsocket’s students.

The Pre-K through eighth grade students of Sanborn Central were entertained on Wednesday, Oct. 21, with a few visiting animals from the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls. 

The friendly zookeeper, Emily, brought some of her friends from the zoo to teach the students about different animals and their habitats. She brought a chinchilla, a kestrel, which is the smallest type of falcon, an Indian stone tortoise and a prehensile tailed skunk. Emily spoke to the students about what each of the animals eat, where they live, and some unique characteristics of each animal. The students were allowed to ask questions about each animal while Emily had them on display. At the end of the presentation, the students were allowed to pet the chinchilla.

It was nice for the students to have someone come to the school and bring something different for them to experience during such a difficult time for people to travel and congregate. The students were in groups of two classes at a time, and each one wore a mask. Emily stated that the people at the zoo feel as though this is something that they can still do because they travel alone and keep their distance from the students while wearing a mask in all schools they visit.
