Third-graders in the Gifted & Talented (GT) program at De Zavala Elementary School recently completed a unit of the curriculum that dealt with public service. As a special project, they contacted the San Marcos Animal Shelter to see what the facility needed. Then the GT students made posters setting forth the needs, and posted them all around the campus. According to the De Zavala GT sponsor Carol Fernandez, students from all grades gave from their hearts to help the animals and the people who care for them. “Students of this age really love animals,” Fernandez said, “and this is a wonderful way for them to experience community service.”
