On October 3rd, the Fourth Grade class visited the Quakertown SPCA to kick off their year-long service learning project. Natalie DiGiacomo, Director of Community Outreach, shared their mission, the needs of the shelter, and the impact that volunteers and donated resources have on the animals and the success of the SPCA. A tour of the facility followed this presentation. During the visit, students also decorated bags containing needed items for adopted or fostered animals.
The next steps in the signature Fourth Grade service learning project are for the students to brainstorm as a class ways that they can help animals by supporting the mission of the SPCA. They will then educate the BFS community about what they learn and how others can help.
