Tate's Giving Begins Today!

Students at Tate Woods kicked off Tate's Giving today! Students made special doggie treat bags for a local adoption site, made a special collection box to collect donations for the pets at Dog Patch and worked together to grow their collaboration skills through animal themed games and reading activities!  Tate Woods is collecting clean towels, clean blankets, dog beds, tough dog toys, paper towels, laundry detergent, garbage bags, sponges, rubber gloves, disinfecting wipes, dish soap and ziploc bags.  Items will be collected through November 16th and used to make goodie bags for the Dog Patch.
