The 2014-2015 School Year Comes to a Close -- Camp Just Around the Corner!
A group of fourth graders from Capital City Public Charter School (CCPCS)spent one of the last days of the 2014-2015 school year touring WARL. The year-long CCPCS partnership enabled eight small groups -- which included every fourth grader -- to participate in Animal Advocates, a five week program designed and facilitated by Jamie Peterson, the lower school's counselor. The four in-class sessions included: Building background knowledge on animals and advocacy; Identifying Community Service and Careers; Taking Action for Animals; Preparing for Service/Learning and the visit to WARL. The fifth and final group meeting was a visit to WARL; students toured the shelter and medical center and distributed brightly colored tug toys that they made for shelter dogs. The rising fifth graders are kind, compassionate and thoughtful young people who will, undoubtedly, continue to advocate for animals. Thank you Ms. Peterson and CCPCS 4th graders for a fabulous year.
