Third Graders Lend a Helping Hand at the SPCA Adoption Center



The third grade mission project exemplified the verse found in 1 John 3:18 (New King James Version) which says, “My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. Our Brook Hill third graders demonstrated their love for homeless shelter dogs by taking action in several ways.  Students spent Wednesday afternoon working at the SPCA Adoption Center on Old Bullard Rd in Tyler. Their good deeds included picking up sticks in the yard, sanitizing toys and kennels, making “Lost Dog” signs, playing with foster dog Buddy and adopted dog Cupcake, and filling treat jars. Third grade president, Luke Graves, presented SPCA representative Pam Hicks with a $630 check. The money will be used to help build a new animal shelter off the Grande Loop. The money was earned by the third graders through a series of bake sales in February and April under the guidance of two very special teachers: Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Bickerstaff.
