Hadley students come to the rescue
Collect much-needed food, supplies for neglected animals
A year-long project has paid off for two Hadley Middle School sixth-graders.
The students, who educated classmates about Hopeful Tails Animal Rescue
in Joliet, organized a collection effort that yielded boxes of much-needed
supplies, including dog food, treats and blankets.
“It was definitely a successful project,” said Hadley teacher Joe Cernak who
introduced students to “Genius Hour” — a movement sweeping the nation
that challenges students to work creatively on a project that interests them.
The students put together a presentation about Hopeful Tails Animal
Rescue, shared it with classmates and encouraged them to help out by
They collected more than a dozen boxes of supplies and proudly delivered
them to the animal rescue in mid-May.
