Half Day Programs
Half Day Pet Pals
On select early release days (per the RSU21 calendar), elementary school kids (K-5) spend the afternoon in the Youth Programs classroom. The Pet Pals play games, work on pet-related projects and have fun, interactive lessons in animal care and compassion. Registration is $30 per session. Half Day Pet Pals runs from noon – 4 pm: Oct 3, Nov 7, Dec 5, Jan 9, Feb 6, Mar 6, Apr 3, May 1 and June 5
Busses are available from Sea Road School and Kennebunk Elementary School. Bus 20 will drop students off at the end of Holland Road where they will be met by a member of our Humane Education team for the short walk to AWS. Because the program follows the RSU21 school calendar, it will not be held if there is a snow day.
Pizza with Pets
On select days off from school, students ages 6-10 spend the morning at AWS. They are encouraged to look for ways to advocate for animals in their communities beyond the classroom through educational games, crafts, discussions, and science, where hands-on learning centered around kindness, empathy, and compassion takes center stage. And of course, there is pizza! Registration is $35 per session. Pizza with Pets takes place 9 AM – 1 PM: Nov 21
