A penguin came to Gordon today

A penguin came to Gordon today.

 

Everyone had weeks to prepare.

 

And yet, it was still a little stunning.

 

Students had raised money to support Mystic Aquarium's work preserving penguin habitats.

 

For a while, students didn't even know that the top fundraising school would win a visit from an actual penguin.

 

And then, no one was expecting to win.

 

Gordon students are always looking for ways to make the world a better place.

 

Penguins are part of the curriculum beginning in Nursery.

 

It was a natural fit.

 

After a few months of hard work and relentless student leadership, Pink/Green the penguin came to campus.

 

Journalists were called.

 

Selfies were taken.

 

Science was discussed.

 

Outfits were donned.

 

Laughs were shared.

 

Gratitude was expressed.

 

Students were thrilled.

 

Memories were made.
