About the Event

This is what the school is hoping the event will look like:

  • Volunteers  gather outside between 8:00 and 8:15.
  • Volunteers will go to each classroom:

       8:15-8:30 Kindergarten and Access Room 

       8:30-8:45: Grade 1

       8:45-9:00: Grade 2

       9:00-9:15: Grade 4, and Access Room 4

       9:15-9:30: Grade3

  • Each 15 minutes, in the classroom, volunteers talk briefly about the benefits of pet therapy and how having them can make someone feel happy or calm when they are sad, nervous, or angry.  Students say hello to the animals.  After 15 mins, the team switches classrooms.
