SKS’s 1st grade participates in a Share the Love Project

share the love project

Mrs. Henderson’s first grade class has spent the last month preparing for Valentine’s Day in a new way. Students gathered pet supplies for dogs and cats throughout the month. Students brought in supplies for animals. Plus the children could ‘earn money’ in class to buy supplies.

The supplies were then donated to the Haven of the Ozarks, a sanctuary for adoptable cats and dogs. The students did this act of kindness instead of having a traditional Valentine’s Day party.

The Haven of the Ozarks came for a visit on Valentine’s Day with a couple of special guests for the students to meet. Students learned about the Haven of the Ozarks mission and presented them with the donated supplies.
