On Wednesday, March 16, 2016, Shannon Franklin, Tony Bullock, and “Hunter”- who is a Deputized blood hound, came to visit Mrs. Burton’s and Ms. Stacy’s class. Shannon was our guest reader for Dr. Seuss week and offered to bring Hunter to school to show the class what he does for our community. Hunter is an asset to the Rockcastle Sheriff’s Department, as well as other surrounding counties.  He helps locate people who are lost or missing.


On March 16th, 2016 Hunter, the friendly Bloodhound, came to visit Mount Vernon Elementary 2nd Graders. We interviewed Mrs. Charon Burton’s class and here’s what they had to say about their special visitor. One second grader told us the dog was “cute, big, healthy, with a floppy tongue and ears, and was slobbery”. These interested 2nd graders learned that the bloodhound can sniff people out better than humans can.  The 2nd grade students also said that they played a game of hide and seek with the bloodhound. Mr. John McQueary hid behind a bush and Hunter the bloodhound had to try to find him. Guess what… Hunter found him! Hunter’s special visit was a memory these 2nd grader will likely not forget- this special bloodhound inspired Mrs. Charon’s 2nd grade class! –written by 5th grade reporters: Carson King, Maddie Ellis, Mackenzie Lopez.


Mount Vernon Elementary 2nd grade had a special guest, Ms. Sherri Spragens from the Rockcastle County Regional Hospital. Ms. Sherri talked about the human body. She shared information about the heart, bladder, kidney, and brain, and lungs.  Their favorite part was when she explained the parts of the human body and watching the skeleton dance.  They also watched informative videos.  She inspired these kids to stay healthy in life.  Mrs. Charon’s class enjoyed Ms. Sherri Spragens’ visit and learning lots about their body and keeping healthy!– written by 5th grade reporters: Carson King, Maddie Ellis, Mackenzie Lopez
