Students enjoy zoo after completing program


Some local students are getting ready for the new school year by visiting the zoo.

Kindergarten students from New Prairie spent time this morning at Potawatomi Zoo.  It was their reward for completing the school's readiness program.

The program helps students prepare for the first day of school.

"The parents like the program, they're getting to go to school a little early and so it gets rid of some of those first day jitters cause they're done and over with and they will hit the ground running on Wednesday," says Kregg Van Meter of New Prairie United School Corporation.

A total of 57 students participated in the zoo field trip.
