Dog Safety Ambassadors

As part of our new 4th grade pilot program at Hendricks Academy teacher, Jen Platz, had the opportunity to award three students the title of "Sit Stay Read Dog Safety Ambassador".

The winners were Josh, Tashun, and Kalvin. Both Tashun and Kalvin are familiar to Hendricks volunteers as they've been in SSR since second grade but Josh is new to the program. All three were excited to be chosen.

Using photos, dog puppets, and the SSR curriculum these students shared their knowledge of dog safety with the 1st grade class. As you can see from the big smile on this 1st grader practicing how to greet a dog, everyone had a great time learning how to be safe around dogs!
