SMS Students Earn Visit From Petting Zoo
Sedalia Middle School teacher Kelsey Wilson's English Language Arts classroom had its third annual Zoo Day on Monday, April 26.
The event is a celebration for students after they have formed opinions on whether animals should be in zoos. Thorni Ridge Exotics brought in its petting zoo, including goats, lemurs, llama, alpaca, zebra, camel, an African Crested Porcupine and more.
