Meet the New Furry Friends in Ms. Mumpton’s Class

Utica Academy of Science Fourth Grade Class Adopts Classroom Pets

Thursday, November 9th, 2023: Ms. Mumpton’s class has grown by two! Since the class reached their goal of 2,000 Dojo points for October, on November 8th, two guinea pigs were adopted as class pets! Their names are Coco and Honey. The students will be responsible for cleaning the cage, feeding them, giving them water, and everything they need to thrive in the classroom. Studies have shown that a classroom pet may help improve children's academic performance and social skills. 

These Atoms are excited to welcome the new classmates to their fourth-grade classroom!


Utica Academy of Science Charter School is part of Science Academies of New York.
