Connolly School students recently dressed as their favorite animals and participated in a variety of fun games to raise money for the National Wildlife Federation, which is dedicated to protecting wildlife and habitats.
The students, under the direction of Student Council adviser Susan Stanco, played Giraffe Basketball, Puppy Paddle and a Kangaroo Sack Race, dressed as cats, bunnies, puppies and a whole lot more. They also had an opportunity to pet and hold some kittens thanks to Diane Connolly of Cove Animal Rescue. In all, the students raised nearly $200 for the organization.
