Shelter Buddies Reading Program - Truro Elementary and Colchester SPCA
As part of the school wide Restorative Practices, staff at Truro Elementary strive to provide opportunities for students to give back to the community while further developing their character and caring nature.
Students and staff have begun the Shelter Buddies Reading Program, a partnership with the local Colchester SPCA. Students who work closely with Mrs. MacIntosh have been learning about Mindful Thinking and Ways of Being. As part of the program, students visit and read to the adoptable animals at the Colchester SPCA, which helps to socialize the animals to prepare them for their forever homes, while developing the students' empathetic skills and sense of serenity.
