Week 13 Wrap Up and Many Thanks to be Given! :)
Even though it was a short week, Week 13 was full of fun and activities to give back to animals in our community. As we were continuing to work on different fundraising activities and advertising for our "Bow-Wow and Meow Holiday Giving Drive" as well as our "Warm and Fuzzy Towel and Blanket" Drive, we also took on another great project to benefit the Salem County Humane Society: designing a backdrop for the Humane Society's upcoming Pictures with Santa fundraiser. We decided on the elements to include in the backdrop from brainstorming and picture searching using the internet. We have sketched the drawing out using our Promethean Board, large white paper, pencils, and black marker. It will help us to transfer the image onto the fabric we are using for the design before we paint it. We will post pictures as we near completion of the backdrop! :)
Also, I had the pleasure on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 of meeting with the Board of Education members of the Salem County Special Services School District to share with them the awesome progress that we've been making with Project R.E.A.C.H. How exciting!
On behalf of my students and I, we all hope that you had a joyful and relaxing holiday. Although it is past Thanksgiving, I believe that every day we should give thanks to the wonderful people in our lives. I want to take some time to thank each and every one of our supporters who have worked so hard to spread the word about what we are doing, to help us with supplies and donations, and who are such amazing people. I can not say thank you enough for the overwhelming amount of support for this initiative, for my students, and for animals in need. It's hard to believe that less than 6 months ago, Project R.E.A.C.H. was born. Thank YOU all for believing in us. :)
Also, just a reminder that we will be collecting donations to benefit animals in need until Friday, December 20th! If you are out and about shopping, or are simply doing some holiday cleaning, please consider making a donation to help our furry friends!
