Nolley gives ‘Paws for a Cause’
Many of the activities during the week focused on the importance of reading, said Jennifer Prexta, school counselor, and the week featured a dog theme.
Students were able to read in a large paper doghouse in the lobby of the school, and reading posters decorated their school. First-graders Trent Bittner and Michaela Neel are shown at right top reading in the doghouse.
At Nolley, preschoolers through fourth-graders read each week to Stewart, a 5-year-old blue merle shetland sheepdog, and his owner, Valerie Slayman, who volunteers at the school, said Prexta.
Students also collected donations of dog food, treats, toys, towels and cleaning supplies for the “Paws for a Cause” program, said Prexta.
Shown at right bottom, first-grader Kourtney Harbour hands dog treats to kindergarten teacher Katie Zuchowski, while Brody Jackovitch adds a donation to the collection.
“This has taught the students giving and helping anyone in need,” she said.
