Earlier this year, dozens of enthusiastic sixth graders came to Roslyn Heights, NY, along with their parents, to attend an assembly to learn more about Mutt-i-grees®. The event marked the culmination of the students’ six-week course of study of the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum. Two puppies had arrived to the event, along with North Shore Animal League America staff and volunteers. The assembly was being held at Temple Sinai, a Reform Jewish congregation. It represented the first use of the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum in a Hebrew school setting.
