Prince William SPCA sponsors 13,000 gift subscriptions of the magazine Kind News for local elementary school classrooms. The publication encourages good character with an emphasis on kindness to animals, respect for the environment, preservation of natural habitats and good citizenship. Included in each issue are articles, activities, short stories, projects, puzzles and celebrity interviews. With school budgets being cut, there are no funds available to teachers for programs like this. Our community suffers when children abuse animals, show no regard for the environment or care little about other people around them. Kind News educates and inspires students. Animal issues are very important to young people.
There is no cost to teachers in Prince William County, Manassas or Manassas Park schools.
Teachers must sign up each year.
Deadline to sign up is July 5, 2022 for the fall 2022-23 school year.
