Therapy Dogs Return to HHS

Working with Therapy Dogs International (TDI), we were fortunate to have therapy dogs at HHS during senior final exams last May. There was overwhelming positive feedback from students and many requested they return again during the 2017-2018 school year.

The therapy dogs will be in the Holliston High School Courtyard before school from 7:00 am - 7:30 am on Tuesday, August 29th to welcome students back to school. Research demonstrates that therapy dogs not only improve the emotional, mental, and academic productivity of students, but also improve school culture as a whole.

We recognize that for all students the transition from 8th to 9th grade and/or the return from the summer regardless of the grade level can be a challenging time and we hope that the presence of the therapy dogs will help to alleviate some of that stress/anticipation.

We also recognize that not all students will want to participate so the dogs will remain in a contained location.
