While there were a number of furry, feathered, shelled and scaly creatures making an appearance Monday, April 11, at Sacred Heart Catholic School, the real stars were the students, who participated in their own fundraiser to raise money for capital projects at the Lombard school. According to Principal Maureen Nielsen, students in sixth and seventh grades did research on the animals so they could serve as presenters at the impromptu zoo. “They really did a nice job,” Nielsen commented, and as part of their service learning, they “all take stewardship of our school.” Pictured is Sacred Heart parent Ronnie Sweiss making friends with a sugar glider, which is native to Australia.
