Celebrating Our Adopted Friends


In December, we auctioned a decorated wreath and tree and donated the money to the World Wildlife Fund. The children picked three animals that they wanted the money to support: an Arctic Polar Bear, an Arctic Fox, and the Blue Footed Booby. This week we received adoption papers, stuffed animals, and a thank you letter from the World Wildlife Organization. The children were overjoyed to find out that their donations are really making a difference. They now have the cute stuffed animals and certificates of adoption to remind them of their new animal friends to the north and south of us!!

So cute! Thanks for teaching the kids about "giving" instead of just receiving during the holidays. :)

How very COOL! The children are learning outside the classroom walls. Even the "little" ones can impact the world in BIG ways.
