The goal of the project was to have students create and lead a project important to them that begins to solve a need within the community.
These students contacted Cheatham County Animal Control to ask what would help them out the most.
Service learners began in early March creating boxes for classrooms around the school to collect food, paper towels, detergent and animal toys for the shelter.
The class with the most donated items per student would win a pizza party with the chance to meet one of the dogs from the shelter.
Harpeth High School responded in a big way! The items brought in were so numerous that it took multiple days and cars to get all of the goods to the shelter. Mrs. Amanda McCoy's class enjoyed the "Pizza with a Puppy" party on March 20.
Thank you, HHS Service Learners and the Cheatham County Animal Control shelter for making this an amazingly successful service project.
