Acorn 2nd Grade Welcomes Leo and Patrick


Lisa Daniels, a 2nd grade teacher at Acorn Elementary School, applied for a Petco for Pets in the Classroom grant, and as a result, her classroom has been awarded a special gift. With the funding received through the grant, Daniels’ classroom was able to purchase a 10-gallon tank, a hermit crab care kit, and two hermit crabs. This will create an opportunity to allow students to learn a sense of responsibility and encourage nurturing. Having pets in the classroom also enhances the science curriculum by giving students a “hands-on” experience to make observations, record information, and compare the diversity of life in different habitats.
