"There is no goose here," Spring Grove Elementary School physical education instructor Robert Nye explains to Spring Grove students (closest left to center,) Emma Minker,7, Elissa Furlan,7, Savannah Garcia,7, Jamie Baldwin,7, Ryan Wisniewski,7, and Valerie Hinz,7, in Amy Bauman's first grade class (center,) when he fails to shout "Goose!" after playing "Duck, Duck, Goose" with them. Nye agreed to dress in a duck costume provided by the American Heart Association for the students on Friday, March 21st, 2014 after the students raised $10,000 during the Jump Rope for Heart Health event held at their school.
