Mrs. Knight’s reading class has been reading White Fang by Jack London. When they read the part about White Fang being forced to participate in dogfights they were mortified. So, they started researching and discovered that the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of the Cruelty of Animals) saves approximately 16,000 dogs a year from dog fighting incidents. This enraged the group, so a plan was started. After brainstorming, they came up with the idea for “Change for no Chains”. Each student made posters, money collection boxes, and as a group they created a PowerPoint that was shared with the middle school students about their fundraiser. We collected $282.84! Mrs. Knight’s reading class would like to thank everyone who contributed and helped them reach their goal. They are writing letters and Mrs. Abraham is sending a check to the ASPCA.
