Grade school along with middle school kids working together to save bats

Middle school students don’t usually mix with elementary kids – especially in the summer. The recipe works for this group of 8 as they hike the grounds at Arrowhead Park in Neola, Iowa.

The subject that has brought the 8th graders and 4th graders together is bats.

“The one we are researching is called the little brown bat,” said Michael Denning.

“It was cool, but kind of creepy,” said Brant Freeberg.

“There’s nothing cute about them at all,” said Olivia Matson.

“[The bats] get themselves under the loose bark,” said Olivia Matson. “And then they follow the path of the sun as the day goes on to keep warm.”

The park ranger told the youngsters about a problem.

“White Nose Syndrome is a fungus that grows on bat’s noses and on their wings and they can’t fly to get water,” said Brant Freeberg. “And they die.”

In spite of the creepiness, the students understood the importance of a bat.

Blair, Nebraska students fight to honor dead classmate

What some Blair High School seniors thought was an easy gesture, turned out to be much more difficult. They wanted to honor their friend Trent Hill by having an open chair where he would’ve sat at graduation. Hill passed away in a tragic rollover crash.
“It was just like as stab to the heart,” said Zachary McDonald. “He played such a big part in not just our class but the upper classmen and the under classmen. He just had a good relationship with everybody.”

When the school said no to the chair, McDonald and his friend Nathan Ziemet decided to start a petition to show the support behind them.
Crystal Robinson’s son Daniel is the next student in alphabetical order after Trent; she was told by the school that if her son leaves the seat open, he would not receive his diploma.
