MOUNT VERNON — A dozen aspiring secret agents took over the library at Columbia Elementary this week to learn spycraft and practice their skills under the direction of spymaster Bonnie Schutte.

The third-, fourth- and fifth-graders spent Monday finding out about spying basics, such as how to study people. They also chose code names, such as “Black Lightning.” One student said he found out that a secret agent needs disguises because “you can’t look like yourself and you can’t tell people anything about yourself.”
