    Lynch’s father played trombone and saxophone.

  • Hermit crabs and fish might not be the first choice for a wonder pet, but some students think they’re pretty cool.

    A few goldfish make their home in the library at Creekside Elementary School in Sonora. Susan McEwen said they might not be used too much for teaching but they often calm the students or are a way to get someone new to open up and feel more comfortable.
