Lastly, this Friday, April 12th is April’s Mission Jean Day, sponsored by the 8th grade for The Michigan Humane Society, which is a non-profit organization that provides animal welfare and sheltering services for homeless, abandoned, or abused animals in the Detroit area. They are the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the state. Volunteers at the Michigan Humane society care for over 500 dogs, cats, and other animals every day. They depend on donations to save the lives of thousands of animals in need. On Friday, your child/children can help by wearing jeans and donating at least $1.00 and/or an item on the MHS Need List. The MHS is always in need of supplies, food, toys, etc. Please look over this list and kindly consider bringing in an item that can help save lives. You can bring in donations any day this month. We all greatly appreciate your generosity and support of the Michigan Humane Society!

The 2nd graders helped the less fortunate by packaging foods at Forgotten Harvest recently. They packaged more than 8,000 lbs. of food! It was a great way to help to fulfill their Lenten promises.
