Summerside Intermediate School Teacher Kelly Adams MacNeill and Class
“PAJAMA DAY” FUNDRAISER
Summerside Intermediate School
October 25th, 2013
Teacher (“Cat in the Hat”) Kelly Adams MacNeill and her Grade 9 class held a “Pajama Day” fundraiser, with proceeds being donated to the Cat Action Team. Thank you, Kelly Adams MacNeill and students!
Kids these days. What are you going to do? Give them a big cat paw high five, that’s what!
Kelly’s Grade 9 class wanted to make a difference for homeless cats, so they raised money through fundraising events such as a Pajama Day, and collected cat items for Cat Action Team.
They invited Cat Action Team members to make a presentation to their class, after which they presented CAT with a donation of $230 and bags of cat food they collected. They also gave CAT items that could be used by people fostering cats such as cat toys, a cat bed, and litter pan. These teens were attentive and respectful during the presentation. They asked questions about cats, asked how to help cats, and told stories about cats they’ve seen in their neighbourhoods.
But that’s not all – the class is working with the carpentry teacher to make a cat shelter. Ron Curtis brought a cat shelter to the presentation to show the kids an example of one.
Making the presentation on behalf of CAT were Beverly and Fred Hillier, Ron Curtis (and his cat shelter) and Karen Noonan.
