Reptiles invade Wareham High School

An unlikely visitor to the Wareham High School library!

An unlikely visitor to the Wareham High School library!

Reptiles invaded the Wareham High School library on Wednesday to give students in Craig Berriault’s science classes an up close and personal look at their studies.

The reptiles were escorted by Jeffrey Beatriz of Acushnet-based pet store Cold Blooded Pets. Students were introduced to everything from corn, ball, and king snakes to a bearded dragon and a tortoise. (A couple of tarantulas were also thrown in the reptile mix…!)

Decas Elementary 4th-graders who are working on publishing a school newspaper this spring got a little help from mentors at Wareham High on Tuesday.

John Flynn’s high school journalism students, who recently published their spring edition of “The Viking Times,” assisted Mike Houdlette’s elementary students with editing their stories, choosing the ones that would appear on their front page, and worked on laying out the paper.

We can’t wait to see the published product!
