---- — Kindergartners at Bancroft Elementary School got a glimpse of the wild last week during a visit from Michelle’s Menagerie.

Wildlife educator Michelle DeBye, whose program is based out of Londonderry, N.H., visited the youngsters on Tuesday, Jan. 7, as part of the Bancroft PTO’s Cultural Arts Program.

DeBye delivered an entertaining and educational learning experience with a variety of animals. The guests of honor included a flying squirrel, opossum, duck, toad, frog and snake.

The Cultural Arts Program is planning other offerings for the kindergartners this year. More information on those programs and activities will become available to Bancroft parents this spring.
