Ms. Nason and Ms. Shea’s kindergarten classes at the Curley K-8 School in Jamaica Plain made community service a big part of their recent visit to the Little Bookworms Pre-School Program at the Boston MSPCA. The children, their teachers, and their families baked dog treats and made cat toys from scratch and then sold them to raise $135 to donate to the Animal Adoption Center. These enterprising little animal advocates proved that even little ones can make a big difference.
On February 29, Ms. Nason’s class came to visit the animals and hear, first- hand, how their hard work and creativity makes a difference for the almost 7,000 animals that come through the shelter doors each year. On March 14th, the Little Bookworms Program will have the opportunity to thank Ms. Shea’s class in person at the MSPCA, when they come to visit. The children will enjoy visiting with some shelter animals, listening to an animal-friendly story, and playing a game or singing animal songs.
