Bridgewater Elementary School 3rd Grade students from Northfield will once again be holding their annual garage sale to benefit the animals at Prairie’s Edge Humane Society! The garage sale will be held on Friday, May 4th from 10:30 AM – 3:00 PM in rooms 109 and 110 at Bridgewater School. All proceeds from the garage sale will be used to help the homeless animals at PEHS. This is an annual project for the students at Bridgewater. In previous years they have raised over $1000 for the animals and according to their teacher, Elizabeth Larson, “we are hoping to improve on even that!”.
The students use the shelter as a project each year, checking our website every morning to moniter the adoptable animals. They are in full swing of planning their sale and are producing commercials to promote their sale to the other classes. The students do the work of organizing sale items, waiting on customers and keeping track of sales. This is a great project and we are so excited to be a part of it. PEHS will be visiting their class on the day of the sale to answer any questions the students may have in regards to the shelter and to thank them for all of their hard work. A special guest from the shelter (of the four legged kind) will also be visiting their class on that day!
The students will also be visiting the shelter later in May for a tour and to deliver items used at the shelter which they have purchased with grant money they applied for as well.
We are very grateful to the teachers, students and staff from Bridgewater Elementary School. This is a great opportunity for community members and parents to help these wonderful students raise money for a cause they have choosen to support. Bridgewater School should be proud of it’s students and of their teachers for educating these young people in giving back to their community.
Please mark your calendars and support the 3rd Graders of Bridgewater Elementary School in their class project to help Prairie’s Edge Humane Society!
