The Humane Society, Animal League for Life provides educational classes and material to elementary schools and other interest groups.

Our "KIND" (Kids in Nature's Defense) education program is a means to encourage the children of our community to become responsible pet owners, develop compassion, respect, and responsible behavior, that will ultimately carry over into adulthood.  

Our education program provides the KIND News to each child participating in this program.  KIND News is designed for students at three reading levels: primary (kindergarten through second grade); junior (grades 3 and 4); and senior (grades 5 and 6). It is published from September through May by the National Association for Humane and Environmental Education youth education division of the Humane Society of the United States.

The KIND newspaper, whose mission is to help shape the future of children,  is a colorful, four-page classroom newspaper read by more than one million elementary school students nationwide. Kind News is highly praised by teachers and has received numerous awards for educational and editorial excellence. Through puzzles, projects, and fascinating articles, the newspaper teaches children the value of kindness toward people, animals, and the environment. Its emphasis on humane values, such as fairness, compassion, and responsibility, seeks to encourage good character in children.

Here are some samples of the KIND News:
Grades K-2     Grades 3-4     Grades 5-6

We are currently sponsoring 25 classes in our Madison County school systems with this program.
