Trinity Lutheran School students spent Thursday morning getting an up-close look at animals normally found in different areas around the United States and the world. Jon Oliver, of Dynamic West School Assemblies, entertained students by allowing them to pet the animals he brought along, including a chinchilla, baby alligator, peacock and boa constrictor. The event was one of the National Lutheran Schools Week activities planned for the week. (Herald Review photo/Meghan Gunther-Haas)
