In March of 2022 the current 8th grade class, then 6th graders, came to Mrs. Beckwith and asked for the addition of a pet to our science classroom.
Mrs. Beckwith said maybe. And here we are a year and a half later with two pets!
With a life expectancy of 10+ years, many ASA students will be able to enjoy her antics!
This year, Mrs. Beckwith had the opportunity to snake sit for a friend for the 23-24 school year, which is how Stanley the corn snake came into our lives.
The middle school students love to hold Stanley and watch him eat every other week.
Stanley has been a fun addition to the science room, and rumor has it that Mrs. Beckwith might be interested in a snake of her own once Stanley goes back home.
Through our classroom pets, students have the opportunity to explore, discover, and appreciate the wonders of God and the natural world around them every day.
