Girls hold bake sale to raise money for the nonprofit animal care shelter PAWS

Grades 4-7 Core Values Academy class in Seattle just finished off their 3-month long service project to support the local animal shelter PAWS. The project involved learning about animals and animal care from a Godly perspective, organizing and holding bake sale fundraisers at the local library and supermarket (rain or shine), engaging their younger siblings in the community through a treat-making activity, and more!

On Saturday, May 14, 2016, the girls dropped off their hard-earned $500 donation to PAWS. Through this experiential learning opportunity, the girls were able to learn about important values and life skills such as determination, compassion and sacrifice, learning from feedback and teamwork. This was also a valuable experience for the teachers of the class who were able to realize just how much innate leadership potential lies within young girls.

This project was not possible without the continuous support and cooperation from the parents. A big thank you to all who helped make this happen!
