A visit from some of God's creatures for the start of school
Students at St. Anne Catholic School in Dixon greet some surprise guests Wednesday during the first day of school. New and returning students were welcomed back with an opening prayer and a petting zoo, where kids could check out chickens, calves, cows, and other critters. Afterward, families were invited to a ” Tears and Cheers" breakfast gathering in the school pavilion. Go to stanneschooldixon.org or find the school on Facebook for more information.
