Middle School students and staff got to dress up as their favorite pooch or pet while also raising money for the Animal Protective Foundation of Scotia during Paws for a Cause Day today.
The event, part of the week-long Spirit Week activities, raised $441.20 and several boxes of pet food and toys were collected.
In addition, students brought in nine boxes of food to be donated to the food pantry at the City View Church in Scotia.
And because it was such a success, Principal Robert Cosmer also agreed to wear his favorite dog costume!
"Thanks so much to Student Council, Shared Decision Making, and all the staff and students today for their fundraising efforts to help benefit Paws for a Cause," said Cosmer. "While it certainly was hot and somewhat embarrassing to dress up in the Dog Suit, it was a no brainer given the reason and support that this Middle School demonstrated for our furry friends."
The donated items went to the food pantry at the City View Church in Scotia. Students and staff donated a total of nine boxes of food.
