New Pawsitive Peers Club

Pawsitive Peers

There's a new club at the Middle School! Advised by Laura Sarno and Elizabeth Rossback, the club's mission is to develop an awareness of kindness and compassion for all living creatures. The next meeting is Oct. 5 after school in the LGI.

"We will work on building academic skills and building confidence by reading and working with a dog partner," they said. "It will teach responsibility and develop "pawsitive" relationships between peers while we work hard to deliver this message to our school and the outside community."

At their first meeting, students learned about the club's mission, shared ideas, played dog bingo and wrote about/drew our own pets. The school's therapy dog, Honey, joined them.

"BackPack Program" Feeds Our Hungriest Students

The program provides backpacks filled with food that is child-friendly, shelf-stable, and easily-consumed. Bags are packed each week by school staff and discreetly distributed to participating children every Friday afternoon.

Since Ichabod Crane’s "BackPack Program" is funded entirely by local donations, the success of the program depends on fundraising efforts. To see how you can help support the BackPack Program in our schools, view the flyer here. All donations are tax deductible.

Ichabod Crane Primary School has been involved in the program since 2011 and is coordinated there by Sandra Funk.
