The Junior School Library hosted a wonderful event for our Grade 1 readers on Friday, May 3. Each year, as part of the ‘Paws for Stories’ program, volunteers from the St. Johns Ambulance Service Dogs visit our school with their four-legged partners to enjoy some stories with our young readers.
Each Grade 1 student has the opportunity to spend time in the library with one of the dogs, to read their favourite story, to ask the volunteers questions about service dogs and to have some cuddles with some adorable animals. This activity is a perfect fit with the Grade 1 social studies unit on Community Helpers; service dogs are an important part of our community.
Paws for Stories is truly a highlight of the year in the library program - and the dogs love it too!
