Eighth Grade Students Join Efforts to Help Animals

Three 8th grade students came together this summer to make a positive impact on animals and those that care for them. Emilee Waltz and Carolina Gonzalez began to help Born Free Pet Shelter, a local no-kill, non-profit shelter, by gathering canned food and money. Within the first month they had donated over 500 cans, 15 jugs of bleach and many blankets and towels. Then their friend and fellow 8th grader Sophia Mendez decided to raise money in her family’s paint store to replace 25 buckets needed by the shelter.

We were all ecstatic, and once we started working on the music that we would sing in New York, we were terrified. The music was the hardest thing we had ever seen. Our director did mention though that there was a solo open to all chorus members that would be attending the concert. Seeing that the solo was comfortably in my range, I began to practice it at home almost everyday.
