The life of an animated character:
I Was Skippyjon Jones
You never know what Read Across America week will bring to Chichester Central School. I know that first hand. When I got to school on the last day before Winter Vacation, I was asked to dress as SkippyJon Jones by Mrs. Audet, the Reading Specialist who plans RAA week. I realized being a mascot was much harder than I thought it was. It was so hot in in there! Thank goodness I had a fan in the head of the costume. Even though it was very hot it was definitely worth it! All the kids loved me! From that day on I gained a lot of respect for mascots because they may have to be in a costume for multiple hours. I will never look at mascots the same way again, now that I’ve been one!
