Give us a kiss

Lakeview Elementary Principal Jodi Rickels smooched a pig at an assembly Friday, May 2, after losing a bet with Lakeview students who went “hog wild” about reading. Students were challenged to complete a variety of reading activities, log their participation and turn their documentation to force Rickels to kiss a pig. After an announcement that Mrs. Rickels had hidden some reading reports in her office, the final tally favored the student body, and Rickels was obliged to pucker up. (photo by Doug Lindner)
