From the 4th grade team--

Dear 4th Grade Families,
In conjunction with our novel study of "perspective" using the novel, Shiloh, we partnered with Orphans of the Storm today.  Orphans of the Storm is a Lake County animal shelter that provides care for animals that have been abused, neglected, lost, and/or abandoned.  Students drew connections between the animals in the shelter, and Shiloh in our novel.
In addition to learning about how Orphans of the Storm helps local animals, we are partnering with them to collect items the shelter needs on a regular basis.  Below are some suggestions for donation items to send to school.  Our grade-level will be collecting donations until December 20th, and will donate all collected items to the shelter!
Help us provide for animals who have been in unfortunate situations like Shiloh!
  • Newspaper (we go through hundreds each day)
  • Blankets (during the winter months every dog goes to bed with a blankie) (not too large or heavy as we wash and dry every blanket daily)
  • Towels
  • Dog bones, chew bones, treats, balls
  • Cat trees, toys, beds, treats
  • Sturdy dog and cat combs and brushes
