Willow Bend Turned Petting Zoo

The hallways of Willow Bend Elementary had a different sound, and smell for that matter on Thursday, May 21. Lane the goat, William Shatner, and Sinatra the pigs were special guests for the students and staff of Willow Bend to celebrate a special occasion. The students were challenged several weeks ago that if they went five consecutive days with 15 absences or less, campus wide, Principal Denise Stewart would kiss a pig!

Well, the students capitalized on that wager and received an even bigger reward. Not only did Mrs. Stewart kiss two pigs, but Assistant Principal Sasha Bennett had to kiss a goat! It was quite a show to see these two ladies pucker up to these barn yard animals, but as Stewart said, “If it’s for the kids, I’ll do it!”
