Tomorrow WHS's Humane Education Program will take twenty-five fourth graders from Hendley Elementary School in Southeast Washington, DC on a field trip to Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary, a 400 acre non-profit refuge for farm animals and wildlife.
The students in Mr. Kenneth Robinson’s fourth grade class have been working with WHS’s Humane Education Program Manager,
“One of the goals of the program is to teach children to make compassionate and responsible decisions. I have been working with Mr. Robinson for 3 years; he’s a wonderful teacher that not only teaches his class math and history lessons, but also life lessons, pushing his students to strive for excellence. It is a great opportunity to take these students out of a neighborhood riddled with violence and into a new and stimulating learning environment,” said
