This Friday, North Shore Animal League of America honored our School Leader, Ms. Ailene Mitchell, with the Human Leadership Award. Along with Principal Michael Tountasakis from North Carolina, these two leaders planned a 700-mile rescue trip that saved the lives of 23 animals and taught our schools all about the power of teamwork and how communities can bond through their love of animals. Also honored was Petey Parker, our first school comfort dog, who will never be forgotten and his wonderful mom, Ms. Irene Parker.  It was a super fun night and those of us who were lucky enough to attend couldn’t be prouder of our school, our leaders and our Muttigrees Club!
