Middle School Service Project
Middle school’s STUGO has organized a second service project date this year to assist the Gougoushan animal shelter in Wufeng District. Students will have an opportunity to work with about 150 dogs waiting for permanent homes. On this visit they will be washing and refilling all the water and food bowls and containers. They will also be brushing, walking, and even just playing with dogs. This interaction is an important activity for the dogs since it helps them with socializing and learning good manners, so that they have a better chance of being adopted later.
MS students need to return the permission forms by Friday, January 26th. Since we must limit the number of students, those who turn in forms first will have the first opportunity to go. This event will take place on Saturday morning, February 3rd, 2018, from 8:00 – 11:30AM. Transportation will be provided by the school.
Along with the visit to the shelter MS STUGO wants to collect leashes, halters, collars and toys for the dogs. These items may be used or new. We discovered on our last visit that there was a great need for more of these kinds of things. Please send donations with your children, and give them to student representatives, or you can leave them in Mrs. Freeman’s room in G1a. Thank you for your help with this worthwhile project.
