Animal Advocates Have Their Own Special Place at the Ross Elementary School Library
Mr. Flanagan, Ross Elementary School's librarian, oversees an interactive library. The Stand Up Against Animal Cruelty area is not only stocked with fiction and non-fiction selections for animal lovers of all ages, but the yellow animal cruelty activity books, that Mr. Flanagan created, encourage students to speak up for those who can't. Caring about animals is a Ross Elementary School core value. Ms. Jaffe and Mr. Markus' fourth and fifth grade classes are participating in a year-long Washington Animal Rescue League program that, like the animal awareness section in the library, promotes responsibility and social action. The Ross library, an inviting, cozy space with Mr. Flanagan, and his welcoming smile and festive bow-tie serving as host and guide, encourages students to enjoy all that the library has to offer. WARL hopes to help Ross continue to build its animal selection in the library. If you would like to purchase a book (or two) contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a book at the shelter for the Ross partnership. Possible titles are Mr. Putter and Tabby Pour the Tea, The Tenth Good Thing About Barney or any of the others selections listed further down the page on the side bar.
