Sundae fun day for Crosslake students


The last day of the year for Crosslake Community School (CCS) students ended with a cherry on top — literally.

As a reward for good behavior, students turned school director Todd Lyscio and physical education teacher Lisa Schumacher into human ice cream sundaes.

Lyscio and Schumacher were covered in ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, sprinkles and even cherries as students cheered.
