Way to Go! Herty Kids Made It Snow!

Herty students accepted a challenge recently. A $2,000 goal was set for the scholastic book fair and our kids met that goal with gusto! In reward for meeting that goal, the students were treated to a snowball fight. Mrs. Riggs and Miss Gilbert were bombarded with shaving-cream snow and fluffy, fleecy snowballs.
