The Principal Penguin

-A A +A

    Northeast Elementary School Principal Joan Crowl made good on a promise to her students Thursday.


    Last fall, Crowl promised if and when her students met a goal of reading 50,000 books, she would  spend a day in an animal or bird costume. Northeast students surpassed their reading goal earlier this month, so Thursday, Crowl donned a penguin suit and greeted her students in the cafeteria during the noon lunch hour.
    Unfortunately for Crowl, the high temperature in Glenwood Thursday was 67 degrees, a little bit on the warm side for a penguin.
