Here at the Morgan School, the treasured therapy dogs have become a once a month treat the entire school looks forward to. On the first Wednesday of every month during X Block, the owners bring their trained therapy dogs to interact with the students. School can be overwhelming and exhausting, and the dogs provide happiness and relief for The Morgan School students.
Prevention coordinator, Kelley Edwards, is the head of REACT, a student organization that challenges Morgan teens to make smart choices. Kelly believes that Morgan is “cutting edge” on mental wellness techniques. The therapy dogs are one of the stress relieving resources available to students.
The ultimate goal of the therapy dog visits is to provide positive interactions for the students. The therapy dogs help students lower stress.
