Third-grade students in Ms. Kim Erwin’s classroom recently completed a project-based learning experience that provided them the opportunity to learn about various economic terms while raising funds to support Marilyn’s Voice, a local animal rescue shelter! Before Winter Break, students held a pet sale in the school lobby featuring a variety of colorful pet scarves and toys which they had created. Through conducting the pet sale and participating in classroom learning activities, students gained an understanding of key economic concepts such as loans, profit, and collateral. Thanks to the generosity of the Sunview Elementary community and customers at the local Pet Supplies Plus store, the third-grade students raised $1,300 on behalf of Marilyn’s Voice, which will use the funds towards its mission of rescuing and rehabilitating dogs that have suffered abuse and neglect. On Friday, January 13th, Ms. Erwin and her classroom presented a check with the amount raised to the owner of Marilyn’s Voice. Congratulations to the students in Ms. Erwin’s classroom for their successful fundraising efforts to help provide dogs in need with a loving home.
