Guide Dogs Visit Lisha Kill Classrooms

Dianne Martin and Ann Halburian, local puppy raisers from Guiding Eyes for the Blind, visited Lisha Kill Middle School classrooms this month.

Accompanying the woman were their young Labradors, Yoli and Jonas. Fifth grade students in Mrs. Stark's and Mrs. Smith's classes enjoyed learning about how these puppies are raised in their early years. They watched the dogs practice skills of settling, sitting, and loose leash walking.

Students had been reading multiple texts on the visually impaired during a Characters and Themes ELA unit, and this visit was an enriching and fun culmination activity.
