Elementary Meets Chiclet!
Chiclet Throughout the year we have the wonderful opportunity to have a Certified Therapy Dog join our school for occasional visits. On November 8th our Elementary students were able to enjoy an introductory visit from Chiclet and her handler Mrs. Decou.

Chiclet is a 6-year-old Newfoundland dog with a sweet and gentle personality. She is a Certified Therapy Dog with St. John Ambulance, who has participated in water rescue, carting and agility training. 

Studies have proven the presence of a dog establishes a calm classroom environment, focuses learning opportunities, increases self regulation, increases positive peer interactions, and fosters respect, empathy and responsibility in students.

We look forward to our future visits with Chiclet and the positive impact she will have on our school environment.
