Dog Wash Fundraiser
May 2, 2019
As part of their 8th grade social action project, the students have decided to hold a dog wash on Saturday, May 4th, from 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m., in the back parking lot of the school by the shop at 334 S. Main Street in Monticello.
The students are raising funds for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. Founded in 2006, PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center actively leads social change to prevent childhood bullying, so that all youth are safe and supported in their schools, communities and online. PACER provides innovative resources for students, parents, educators, and others, and recognizes bullying as a serious community issue that impacts education, physical and emotional health, and the safety and well-being of students.
The project was created by 8th grader Amber Truttmann as a real life way to solve the bullying problem in a book that teacher Tonia Swinehart assigned to her in class. All of the students presented projects to the class, and they voted on Amber’s project to work on as a class.
The cost for small dogs will be $4.00 and large dogs will cost $6.00. Shampoo and conditioner will be provided, but you may bring your own if you wish.
