Featured Author and Veterinarian, Dr. Ruth MacPete!
Kindergarten through Grade 3 students were recently treated to a special assembly featuring author and veterinarian, Dr. Ruth MacPete!
Dr. MacPete spoke to the students about her children’s book, Lisette the Vet, and answered the many questions they had about what it is like to be a veterinarian.
Her adorable adopted dog Oski also came on campus to assist her in a veterinary examination at the end of the presentation.
The experience was so informative and fun, and many students left saying they wanted to work with animals when they grow up!
