Moose Visits Playground

Students, staff, and faculty received quite a surprise last Monday when a moose was spotted on the playground! The moose was inside the fenced playground area, so DNR officials were called to assist, and the moose left without incident. Teacher Rachel Peacock managed to get a short video, which was posted on our Facebook page and which generated a tremendous amount of traffic there! You can see the video by visiting our Facebook page. The L’Anse Sentinel also reported on the story and featured it on the front page of the paper last week.
