GCHE is fortunate to receive copies of Maddie's Tail Wag,
thanks to the generosity of Maddie's Fund
Maddie's Tail Wag is a collection of activities and coloring pages for animal lovers six-years-old and under - although older school children can enjoy them, too! The fun and educational pages are intended to help children develop skills necessary for entrance into kindergarten.
GCHE has distributed copies of MTW to young children around the metro
Atlanta area. See our FB page for photos from our outreach events.
We recently asked two of our favorite animal lovers,
Dalton & Ethan Siggers,
check out the booklet for us.
They gave Maddie's Tail Wag a positive review!

GCHE Teacher, Andrea Appel, was selected by United Animal Nations to be trained in the Humane Education Ambassador Reader (HEAR) program. This unique community-bases literacy program is aligned with academic content standards and helps children explore the bond between people and animals through stories an discussion, helping children develop critical thinking skills and empathy. GCHE will be able to provide programming for unique recipients with Andrea' training.
Note: The HEAR program name has changed to
Red Rover Readers
During the 2011/12 school year, GCHE teachers presented programs to students in Dekalb and Fulton Counties, City of Atlanta, and several summer camps. Programs have included Responsibility for Pets, Safety around Animals, Careers with Animals, and Canines & Communities (see above).
Please Contact Us if you want us to bring a program
