During their unit of study, they learned about what it takes to be a good animal caretaker and learned about organizations in their area that support homeless animals.
The first grade classes decided to take their lesson and apply their learning to a real-life problem in their community.
The students collected items for Paws Across Oswego County, a non-profit animal rescue organization that not only fosters and adopts animals, they also work with local shelters to provide spay and neuter services to combat the problem of pet overpopulation.
