LYCS Leaders sent Valentine Kisses to the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter this Valentine’s. Giving a little love to our furry friends was top priority for students as they collected a variety of toys, tin food and treats for the dogs and cats at the shelter. Christine Conte was on hand with a furry friend to receive the donations and talked to the students about her work at the shelter during the LYCS Leaders Grade 5 Club meeting.
