State park rangers visit CES
Students get up close and personal with corn snake and red tail hawk
Coalmont,TN December 18, 2017: Tennessee state park rangers visited Coalmont Elementary School recently bringing with them “Cornbread,” a corn snake, and “Artemis,” a red tail hawk, as part of an after school lesson on wildlife, conservation, habitats and biomes.
According to Wallace Hiett, director of the after school LEAPS program at CES, Bobbi Sue Fugate planned the event and invited the rangers.
“Mrs. Fugate is an great asset to the CES after school program,” he said. “Without her, I don’t think many of the ideas or programs would work.”
Students receive educational activities such as the park rangers program, field trips and tutoring services available through the after school program at CES.
