This tweet just came across our Twitter feed and when Ms. Harrison’s 2nd grade Class at Chicago Lab Schools tweets us, we pay attention.

Check out the party they’re about to have to celebrate the arrival of the Class of ’15 Whooping cranes in Florida!

    As a former MN elementary teacher this story just warms my heart!! I have met some of the wonderful OM staff and I bet they also felt the kids’ love. I agree with Kat Williams” comment.
