Good Deed at the Philadelphia Zoo
March 24th, 2009
The Second Grade showed their love of the Philadelphia Zoo and its animals by joining in their 150th birthday celebration! The children collected multiple bags of “presents” for their favorite zoo animals! They followed the instructions given by the zoo on what the animals like as treats and made sure to bring in items that would make the animals smile! Each child also researched an animal and made a beautiful birthday card for that animal! The children had so much fun showering their favorite zoo creatures with love, creativity, and presents. Mrs. Szathmary delivered the presents and cards to the Philadelphia Zoo’s Birthday Party on Saturday, March 21, 2009. The zoo’s employees were ecstatic to see the large donation. They especially loved the thoughtful cards and were excited to share the treats and sentiments with their furry (and non-furry!) friends.
