Deasy has received a batch of locally collected garden snails (not from our garden, thank goodness). Mrs. DePietro's class is currently caring for them with the hope we will soon have enough for all first grade classrooms. So far, these mighty Glen Cove gastropods seem right at home and have shown a distinct fondness for apples as well as a willingness to pose to have their portraits drawn.
