PVPV/Rawlings Elementary School chips in for local animals with ‘Pennies for Pets’


PVPV/Rawlings Elementary School celebrated its 100th day of school with a lesson in community service during its service learning project, Pennies for Pets.

Beginning Jan. 23, students were invited to bring in loose change throughout the week during which teachers hosted classroom-based learning opportunities with the collected funds. Both school buildings created a “pet bulletin board” for which students were encouraged to bring in a photograph of a beloved animal.

Altogether, students raised $816.52, which was donated to the Humane Society.
