Our 3rd-5th grade Animal Club has partnered with the Animal Rescue League through a program called Critter Camp. They are fostering a rabbit named Peter while educating students in our building about the ARL’s mission and promoting Peter for adoption. Peter has been a wonderful addition to Ms. Ford’s classroom. #weare50263
