Chris Troester, principal at Hazel Grove Elementary, promised to kiss an animal of the students’ choice if children met their grade-level math fact goals this spring. Through a school vote, the students selected a mule. On March 28, a mule named Fox visited the school and Troester fulfilled his promise before the student body.
