Today we had the best (and easiest!) field trip ever! In fact, we did not even leave the classroom!
Cisco, a certified therapy dog, came to visit all of the third graders at our school today!
Cisco’s owner, Terri Hancock, was so kind to provide our students with a FREE in- school field trip! Terri is the program director over at the Naperville Humane Society. This humane society holds a special place in our hearts! Remember in March when these girls were selling duct tape pens as a fundraiser for the shelter?
Well, that really inspired them to continuing showing empathy and compassion towards animals. After a few phone calls of talking with Terri, we scheduled a time for her to come and talk with our third graders. We sent home a permission slip, which listed the “wish list items” for the society. Ask and you shall receive! Look at what our students brought for the donations:
AMAZING!!!! Dog food, toys, leashes, litter, towels, paper towels, money!!!
The janitor, several students and staff members had to help Terri load all the donations into her (luckily!) big car.
Is this not the cutest picture ever??? Look at Cisco keeping a close eye on his owner during the presentation!!!
The kids **LOVED** every minute of it!!!! They all got to give Cisco quick pet on the way out!
Again, look at Cisco! Still looking at his owner! So sweet!!!!
I ***HIGHLY*** recommend that you call your local humane society or animal shelter. This was a wonderful opportunity for the students to learn about service, compassion, and empathy!
Cisco and Terri- Thank you so much for the wonderful presentation!!!
