All for one and one for paws

The Grade 1 and 3/4 classes at RSS were involved in a pay-it-forward project.

The Grade 1 and 3/4 classes at RSS were involved in a pay-it-forward project.

Ferraro Foods donated pumpkins to our classes so we could do a pumpkin exploration with our buddies around Halloween (observation of pumpkin, estimating seeds and size, counting and measuring, baking seeds).

With all that pumpkin, we knew we didn’t want to waste it. The pumpkins were roasted and used to make pumpkin dog treats by students in the foods room.

We packaged, labelled and took them to town to ask local businesses in Rossland if they’d be willing to have the dog treats on their counters with a donation jar.

We had biscuits in the Rossland Ferraro’s, The Grind and Tails and raised over $200 that the classes decided to donate to the SPCA.
