Laura Beth Dixon and her mother recently brought a visitor to the Southland Academy first graders. The turtle, which has been affectionately named Tommy, arrived on the day that the children in Peggy Roquemore’s class was studying the sound of the letter T and reading a story about a brave tortoise. Tommy toured some of the other lower school classes and now temporarily resides in the Science Lab.
