In October of 2004, Sr. Barbara Davis brought 19 turtles to Franciscan Academy.  The turtles had been in a habitat at St. Mary's School in Shelby, OH.  Mrs. Janet Bradley took care of the turtles and because she was leaving a new home needed to be found.  Thus, Sr. Barbara at the Franciscan Academy adopted the turtles promising to build a habitat for them on the school grounds as a mission to St. Francis.
