Welcome to the Critter Club!
Our enthusiastic group is off and running for another year! Meetings take place immediately after school every Wednesday until 4pm. Students are responsible for arranging rides home if they take the bus. New members are always welcome!
Critter Club hosts a Furry Visitor!
Last night the Critter Club enjoyed a visit from Nova, a very special pup from the Lakeland Humane Society. He came to collect the fundraising dollars raised by the club. Nova is a beautifully behaved 3 month old girl who was clearly joyous to receive all the loves and cuddles from club members. She has overcome a great deal of adversity in her young life - being born outside in the bitter cold that was last February. From the subsequent frostbite, she has lost part of her tail, one paw, and damage to 2 other paws but has lost none of her charm or puppy enthusiasm. This sweet girl has oversome it all and appears to be a normal healthy pup - the only thing really missing is her forever home.
Candy Bags a Big Hit!
The candy bag fundraiser on Track & Field day was a huge success, raising $383 for the homeless pets at the shelter. This week marks the final week of critter club for this year...all in all we raised $996 in cash plus all the supplies in the supply drive at Christmas!
Candy Bags for Sale!
Track and field day is coming up and the critter club has been busy doing the 50m dash around the library tables filling candy bags with all kinds of gummy goodness! Keep your eyes peeled for the cart being taken to the various events out on the field. A candy bag can be yours for the low cost of $1. All proceeds will go to help the homeless pets at the shelter.

The Critter Club & The LHS "Paws for a Cause" A Huge Success!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the frantic race to the finish line to see who would be the class to enjoy an ice cream sundae party! Miss Plain's 6P came out on top, thanks to the efforts of some very diligent young men who waited until the last bell rang to secure the lead. They enjoyed their party on Monday. 5W came a close second with 5G not far behind. Both Classes were treated to an ice cream sandwich for their valiant efforts. We raised $379 for the homeless pets at the shelter. Great job NHS everyone!
Christmas Supply Drive for the LHS!
The critter club is hosting a Christmas Fundraiser for the homeless pets at the shelter. You can find the link to their wishlist is below. Donations do not have to be new. If you have lost a pet and have toys, beds, or supplies left, they become a beautiful tribute when you donate them to an pet in need. Perhaps your pet has outgrown a collar, or refuses to eat a certain type of food...bring it in :) Food, treats, and toys are always a welcome donation but you might see some things on the list that you have laying around the house creating clutter that you can donate. Perhaps you bought a new laundry soap that makes a family member itch?Bring it in - there is always laundry to do at the shelter!
Every donation brought in earns the student a house point and an entry to win a giant unicorn stuffy! The deadline is Wednesday, December 19th when the Humane Society will visit the school to pick up their donations.
Thank you in advance for your help in this worthy cause to help the homeless pets in our community :)
