Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District

Students Organize Donation Drive for APL

Jan. 12, 2018 -- Students in Mrs. Meese’s class at Canterbury Elementary and Mr. Russell’s class at Boulevard Elementary recently organized a successful donation drive for the Animal Protective League in Cleveland. 
Students worked with their teachers to organize the drive, decorating collection boxes and advertising the initiative over their schools’ morning announcements. The teachers, students, and staff in both buildings worked together to collect items for the animals in need. The classes then delivered the items to the APL.
"We were able to see the dogs currently at the APL, along with the rabbits and cats who need homes," Mrs. Russell said. "The staff at the APL were amazed at the amount of items the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Schools community were able to collect."  
"The students learned that December is the season of giving," he added.
