RUFF READERS PROGRAM
This demonstrably effective program is geared primarily toward elementary age students who are uncomfortable reading in class, disinterested in reading, or shy reading aloud in front of others. Accompanied by their handlers, trained and certified therapy dogs are paired one on one with a child. The program meets Wednesdays at 5 with 10 minute sessions by appointment for each child. A signup for March and April is open now. You can call Chris at 529-2044 or stop in.
Whenever children are sent home directly after school due to stormy weather and whenever school is cancelled, our program is automatically cancelled. Because of our waiting list, if children miss 2 consecutive sessions (other than illness or vacation) we will not hold their place.
