NCEC School Spotlight
Mr. Fletschock, Anamoose Elementary School
How many 6th-graders would want to hang out with their teacher outside in January?

Mr. Fletschock took the Anamoose 6th grade class ice fishing at Goose Lake. The weather was warm and the fish were biting. (One girl caught 35 perch!) It was a totally new experience for a number of the kids. Thanks to the parents and grandparents that helped out, a great time was had by all.
