Aberdeen Elementary 2018-2019

 

On Wednesday, June 5, 2019, the fourth graders at Aberdeen Elementary assembled to “graduate” as young pet advocates after completing a six session program presented by volunteers from Moore County’s Pet Responsibility Committee (PRC).  The assembly took place as the school year was ending.  Students were congratulated by Moore County Sheriff Office’s Sergeant Chris McNeill, who answered many questions about his job working for Animal Services.  Another guest speaker was Robert Williams, JAS K9 Training.  He demonstrated commands with former AES student Makayla and her young dog, Zoie, who are training as a Search & Rescue team.  During the classroom program, students were given the opportunity to design a “clinic” bag, to be used at the Spay and Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills on Highway 1, in Vass, to dispense medications to pet owners.  Art awards were given to Aiden, Joshua, Sofeah and Kyleigh for the most creative bags illustrated with a meaningful message.  The PRC mascot, Speuter, read an inspirational poem about the difference we all can make and then awarded Abigail, Ava Jane, Lesly and Jimmy certificates for submitting an entry in a contest for a pet to be fixed, thereby controlling pet over-population in Moore County.  As a result, male dogs Rascal and Max, and a female dog, as well as a kitty, Cookie, will neutered or spayed this summer.  Students Tyler, Amadia  and Reniyah all submitted entries for teacher Ms. Lane’s cat, Charlie.  The free spays and neuters were generously funded by The Moore County Kennel Club as part of their mission to promote responsible pet ownership and their support of the PRC. The PRC volunteers had a terrific time with the enthusiastic Aberdeen Elementary students!!!
