Therapy Dogs Positively Impact Students
Posted on 09/13/2022
On August 26, Topeka Public Schools celebrated National Dog Day by recognizing the important role our therapy dogs play as part of the mental health team.

The district employs over a dozen therapy dogs, who positively impact students and staff each day by providing emotional support, reducing stress and anxiety, and providing a sense of calm.

Many students enjoy reading books to the therapy dogs, who serve in the classroom, the office, the library, and in many other areas of schools.
