Therapy dogs are trained to work with students in schools to promote social-emotional wellness, communication and interpersonal skills, and increase academic motivation and performance. Sarah Eades Hamilton is the part-time ESU #3 mental health therapist who serves FCCS students. Sarah and her four-legged partner, Shadow the Labradoodle, operate as a certified therapy dog team in the provision of services for students. Sarah’s and Shadow’s time will be dedicated to targeted groups of students, and these specific students’ families will be notified. There will be a sign posted to communicate whenever Shadow is in the building. Parents who have any concerns with their student(s) coming into contact with Shadow the therapy dog should contact the office.
