The third graders at Minnehaha Elementary received a visit from Jesse the peregrine falcon. Jackie Fallon, with the Midwest Peregrine Society, brought the falcon into the classroom to teach students about falcon characteristics, offspring, habitat and diet. They learned that the falcons can fly up to 223 miles per hour! The third graders would like to thank Jackie and Jesse for teaching them and Christian Dalbec for the amazing pictures.
