Service Dog Assembly

Today our students were lucky enough to learn about service animals.  A special thanks to Theresa Dickson and Megan Kokaras of The Service Dog Project (http://www.servicedogproject.org/) and Carlton's own Mrs. Karen Nagle for participating in the presentation. Please enjoy the pictures of Merle and Elmira. After the assembly, the students broke up into their Community Circles and made informational posters on what they learned.
