Pequenakonck Elementary School’s One Cub recently hosted a kindness-themed assembly that allowed students to meet the beneficiary of their recycling program, Good Reasons Dog Treats. Additionally, One Cub awarded the previous recipient, Pegasus Therapeutic Riding, with a $526 donation.

“These efforts demonstrate our Profile of a North Salem Fifth-Grader as a Problem-Solver,” said Director of Instruction and Human Resources Julio Vasquez. “Specifically, the work our staff and students do to display kind, empathetic, respectful, responsible, honest and safe behavior towards self and others. It also demonstrates their efforts to make intentional choices that demonstrate a concern for a sustainable environment.”
