Bailey’s unveiling was a big hit, with students high-fiving and hugging the mascot. The costume was a gift from the school’s PTO, and PTO parents will man the fur alternately throughout the school year.


Also on hand Tuesday were members of the Washington Township Fire Department, who helped welcome Bailey while also promoting Fire Safety Week. Bells will host a fire safety assembly on Thursday.


In the photo at left, Bailey gets a big hug from Bells second-graders Brooklyn Swider and Reagan McKinney on Tuesday morning.
