The students and faculty marched down the halls and throughout the gym while parents and peers were watching the parade come by. It was a great site. But beware if you come to Hobble Creek, you might get nabbed by one of these creatures!

These two models are awesome because they actually rain. Water also moves through them to show how it creates electricity and waters our crops, to name just a few of the things that the models do. The Aquarium also brings some of their living animals when they
