Roadrunner Finishes New Tortoise Habitat

Desert Tortoise During the first weeks of school, Roadrunner Elementary added irrigation and plants to a beautiful new tortoise habitat that a new friend, Charlie Olsen, built for them. With these finishing touches complete, they were able to welcome their new friend on August 28, 2018. Although the new desert tortoise does not have a name quite yet, students and staff we will work together as a school to give her the perfect name. The kids were so excited to see her arrive, and it was a wonderful way to start the new school year!  A HUGE thank you to Charlie Olsen for building the habitat, the school looks forward to enjoying, and learning more, about their new friend!
