PEACCE on Earth

BOCES PEACCE Program DonationThe students in Mrs. Slagle’s PEACCE classroom at Arlington High School have learned the meaning of making a “donation” this holiday season. During their current event studies, they found a way to help a local organization in need.

On December 4th the Jack Russell Refuge in Rhinebeck suffered a devastating fire. A large majority of the kennel was destroyed and some of their beloved dogs perished. Upon hearing this news students did a bit of research by going on the refuge website to see what was needed. Contact with the refuge owner, Dale Mountan, was made and the owner suggested our students donate dog toys and marrow bones as a special treat.

All of our students and their families generously donated. A special thanks to Adams Fairacre Farms in Wappingers Falls for donating a carton of marrow bones to our cause.
