MUMS pet contest raised funds for animal shelter

MIDDLEBURY — Sara Nadeau’s teacher advisory (TA) class, part of the Ohana team at Middlebury Union Middle School, in December raised money for the Homeward Bound animal shelter as a community service project.
The nine seventh-grade students in the class, which is similar to a home room, organized and ran the school’s first annual “Cute Critter” contest. All MUMS students and staff were able to contribute a photo of their pet(s), which were displayed on a table with a jar for each pet. People deposited money — pennies, dimes, quarters and even folding money — into the jar for their favorite. In all, 28 entries were submitted.
Voting was held the week of Dec. 9-13. The winning pet was Tucker, teacher Martha Santa Maria’s dog.
This contest raised almost $357 thanks to the generosity of the MUMS community. The TA students delivered the money to Homeward Bound on Dec. 19.
