RFA 9th graders sponsored two shelter animals, Momma Chase the dog and Alfred the cat, from the Humane Society of Rome. On Friday, May 31st the students had the opportunity to visit with animals and get their picture taken with them. 

Approximately 75 students voluntarily practiced civic participation by creating posters, fundraising, and attending an educational presentation. HSR Manager Helene Rudiak gave a presentation about this compassionate community issue and opportunities for additional student community action. 

RFA Social Studies teacher Daniel Dunn, Science teacher Nancy Neiley (Rotary Interact Club), and Language Arts teacher Patricia Nisiewicz (Key Club) hosted this 15th annual after school event on Friday, May 31, raising a donation of over $1,000.
