Third graders at McCrary Elementary School in Asheboro, North Carolina, applied their math skills – fractions and measurements – to build dog houses for the Randolph County SPCA.
Last week, 71 students worked alongside volunteers from Habitat for Humanity’s Dog House Build Project to build two beautiful dog houses – from start to finish – for their local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
This was the fifth year in a row that McCrary Elementary has participated in the dog house project that not only allows kids to apply the skills they learn in school, but also teaches about volunteerism and doing good for the community.
Making the build even more special are the signatures of all 71 students inside the dog house walls, with messages like “be a good dog,” and “enjoy your new dog house” from the kids.
The dog houses are very much needed as new anti-tethering laws in the county are requiring pet parents to provide better shelter and living conditions for the furriest members of the community.
