Second grade students selling Valentine's Day treats for animals
Published on Wed, Feb 13, 2013 (4:32 p.m.)From noon to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday (Valentine’s Day), 2nd-grade students at Meadows School will join rescued dogs from Nevada SPCA for an annual bake sale benefiting animal rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption.
Last year, the students impressively raised more than $7,000 for the animals!, primarily through the sale of items costing well under $1. This year, the students hope to sell even more Valentine’s Day treats.
We'd love to see you there. Thank you.

MEADOWS SCHOOL STUDENTS BECOME YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS AND HELP ANIMALS IN NEED
WHAT: Valentine’s Day Bake Sale benefitting Nevada SPCA
WHO: 2nd Graders from The Meadows School will hold the school’s 9th Annual Bake Sale for Nevada SPCA’s animal rescue and rehabilitation work.
WHEN: Thursday, February 14, 2013, 12-noon to 1:30pm.
WHERE: The Meadows School, 8601 Scholar Lane, Las Vegas (Lower School Auditorium)
WHY: This isn’t your average Bake Sale: By selling brownies, cookies, sundaes, cotton candy and more, the students raised more than $7,000 at last year’s event. And this year, the students plan to raise even more. The Bake Sale is planned by the 2nd graders, but the entire school participates by purchasing the sweets. The students have recently toured Nevada SPCA and met rescued animals, which helps them understand the importance and impact of their bake sale.
