Pet of the Week:
Third and Fourth Grade students from Alton Elementary School in Brenham, TX who read a story and wrote a summary about the book over Christmas break earned the opportunity to go to TBAR Ranch! This year 28 4th grade students and 18 3rd grade students got to come out and enjoy this fun filled educational opportunity. The event includes reading age appropriate rescue stories, riding horses and going on a hay ride. Hands on interactions like these build self esteem, teach about animal care and help our children become better pet owners and future advocates for animals. When you add in the book component, we’re building their reading skills too! As an Elementary School teacher this adds even more to the intrinsic value of this event.
