P.A.W.S. (Pets and Wildlife Seminar) is a new seminar C option starting this year. Until the end of the week, the seminar is challenging the school to help them save animals. 

P.A.W.S. is collecting used mascara wands for the Appalachian Wildlife Refuge. These wands help remove fly eggs and larva from wild animals. Because the bristles are close together, it makes it easy to clean the fur or feathers. 

Junior Julia Knight, a member of the first quarter seminar, said, “The brushes are used to clean dirt and oil out of animals’ fur.”

According to seminar moderator and science teacher Mrs. Maureen Pappas,  “This is just an extension of where we can help other animals outside of the Indianapolis area. We plan on doing more service opportunities like this throughout the year with things that seem insignificant to help animals that are in need.”

You can drop off any wands to a Room 108 by the end of the week. The club will be cleaning the brushes as a part of their first service project.
