First-Graders Donate To Little Shelter

The East Woods first grade spends much of the year studying the animal kingdom, and this year, the school wanted to offer the students an opportunity to focus on animals in need, since much attention is given to people in need during the holiday season.

In keeping with the spirit of giving, the students helped a local animal shelter by donating to the homeless cats and dogs. Students sent in items such as, food, treats, blankets, and beds, to help these animals in need. All donations were placed in paw-shaped stockings in the first grade classrooms. Over the holidays, stockings filled with these goodies were brought to Little Shelter in Huntington.

The volunteers were so appreciative and very impressed with the amount of donations. The students received a wonderful thank you letter and are looking forward to having a volunteer come in the spring to teach them about the shelter and pet responsibility.

East Woods School is an independent, co-educational pre-nursery through eighth grade school, including a full-day kindergarten program. East Woods School is located on 46-acres in Oyster Bay.
