If you are a teacher and would like to have a pet in your classroom... here's how!
Pets in the Classroom is now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year!
It's an educational program that provides financial support to teachers from pre-K to nine to purhcase small classroom pets!
The program's mission is to promote the joy and benefits of pets through education, support and interaction.
You can choose from hamsters, gerbils, freshwater fish, parakeets, snakes, rabbits and hermit crabs.
Pets in the Classroom encourages students and teachers to decide together what kind of a pet is a good fit for their classroom...SUCH a great way to start teaching the kiddos about that unconditional love one can get from having a pet AND all the responsibilities too...but WORTH IT ALL :)
