August Sloth Fans of the Month
Ms. Pamela Arcuri is a kindergarten teacher at the Primary School in Deer Park, NY. She emailed the Sloth Sanctuary back in April of 2013 about her class wanting to help the Sanctuary. As part of their Earth Day performance the students sang the song “We Can Make a Better World”. With their upcoming school performance the students put their heads together and thought about what they could do to make a better world. Ms. Arcuri introduced them to our Sloth Sanctuary and they were hooked. they decided if they could help raise funds to make a donation to us, They would be able to “Make a Better World” by helping sloths! How cool is that? Each student worked hard outside of school to make money which they donated to the Sloth Sanctuary. They also created drawings of the sloths and wrote the Sanctuary letters addressed to “Oprah” who is their favorite sloth. Here is Ms. Arcuri’s wonderful class of Sloth Fans along with one of the students beautiful drawing!
Thanks Ms. Arcuri and your wonderful group of kindergarten students. Oprah is doing great thanks to your wonderful contribution. We have a new release/research project that is going to help us learn more about sloths being introduced into the wild. You have made a better world and we appreciate all of you!
