Today, our students were fortunate enough to have some visitors for the day! They were extremely friendly, playful, and very sleepy! St. Bernard puppies, Lizzie and Mater, went to Gr. 5 ELA for reading, Gr. 5 Math to help with project work, napped in Ms. Crow’s office and then some more napping with some of the grade 7/8’s after their final of four day ELA assessment and before they went to the high school for Lifeskills.  Then this afternoon, they went to 5/6 Social Studies, enjoyed second break outside, each with their own diligent group of supervisors, and then finished the day in Social Studies, helping students with their final projects.  It was really a wonderful day having them here! All of us, students and staff, really enjoyed their company today!

There is a lot of interesting research about dogs in the classroom.  If you are interested, I have attached some articles below:
