WELCOME TO A NEW SCHOOL YEAR AND LOTS OF EXCITING OPPORTUNITIES TO HELP ANIMALS IN KIND CLUB, KIND CLUB WILL BEGIN IN OCTOBER.
KIND CLUB CELEBRATES THE END OF THE YEAR WITH A YUMMY VEGAN FIESTA!
The KIND Club/Student Council Book Sale at CB was a huge success! We raised $275 to help the Pennsylvania SPCA! In addition, students and staff bought books at bargain prices for their summer reading and classroom libraries. Please visit www.pspca.org to see the incredible humane and law enforcement work of our state SPCA.
KIND Club Volunteers can continue learning about animals and earning service credit by working at Forgotten Cats over the summer. Contact us when you can come!

Spring Fair, May 11, 2013. KIND Club raised $120 for Forgotten Cats with our Bark and Bake Sale. Members made pet toys, nutritious dog treats, and yummy baked goods. We also distributed over 100 Vegan Tofurky Samples and handed out literature about compassionate and healthy eating.
Earth Week: Our 5th and 2nd grade buddies teamed up for a cleanup of the wetlands near our school. We picked up several bags of trash, plastic, metal, and recyclables for the area. Students of CB also designed grocery bags with earth and animal-friendly reminders for the Earth Day Grocery Project. Bags are used by O'Neill's Market.
Ms. Ryan's Fifth Grade and KIND Club enjoyed vegetarian food during the Great American Meatout, March 20. Many students and staff took the pledge to go meatless one or more days a week!
Teachers and students sampled meatless cuisine prepared in Ms. Ryan's kitchen. Many Tofurky products were also generously donated by Turtle Mountain Foods. For a free Vegetarian Starter Kit and other good stuff, visit www.goveg.com

We were Charmed!
We learned so much from Ms. Sue Kelly Smith and Charm during their recent visit to KIND Club. Charm demonstrated various obedience commands and amazed us with fun tricks. Ms. Smith showed us why commands are important for the safety of both dog and owner. Therapy Dog, Charm, and Ms. Sue Kelly Smith, former speech pathologist at Copper Beech, l visit Kind Club for a demonstration.
