WARL Animals Benefit from Market Mania at Mundo Verde Bilingual Public Charter School

Second graders, also known as the Ospreys,  in Ms. Camila and Ms. Naomi's class at Mundo Verde Bilingual Public Charter School recently studied the ins and outs of markets.   As part of their business plan,  they chose to donate the proceeds from their sales to the Washington Animal Rescue League!  The young entrepreneurs created and sold paper jewelry, origami, bottle cap key chains and metal wind chimes.    Their creative wares were in great demand.  A check for $150 arrived at WARL over the weekend along with a nice, colorful  note from the students.   On behalf of the cats and dogs and the staff at WARL, thank you Mundo Verde Public Charter School Ospreys for caring about animals and using the proceeds from Market Mania to help them.

A Birthday Tradition Benefitting WARL Animals

Bella and her friend pose in front of bags of birthday donations.  Julian, an animal caretaker, and Ruby, WARL's  Medical Director's loyal companion, show their appreciation for all of the gifts.
This is not the first time that Bella has asked for gifts for the animals at WARL in lieu of birthday presents.  Last year she and her mom delivered so many bags that WARL staff declared it a colossal donation.  This year's birthday delivery came in two carloads!   Bella, who wants to be a veterinarian like her grandmother, understands that shelter animals benefit greatly from comfy beds, toys and treats -- so that's what Bella asked friends, family, and classmates to give to help celebrate her birthday -- linens, toys, and treats for the animals at WARL.   Thanks, Bella, have a great year!

Cats are Better Than Television!

When I get up from my favorite rocking chair, Merl and Charlotte quickly claim the seat for their own.  It doesn't take long before one cat gets a tad bit possessive of the space.   Who do you think will be QUEEN of the chair after this little kitty exchange?

How many adjectives are there for the word HAPPY?
