Therapy Dogs of Long Island brought trained therapy dogs to the Roslyn Community Center on June 5 to spend time with Roslyn High School students. Students attended brief sessions, during their lunch or free period, with a trained therapy dog, supervised by a volunteer handler. They were given the chance to experience the mental health and wellness benefits of therapy dogs during a time when they are feeling the stress and anxiety of their demanding final exam schedules, as well as other academic and social pressures. Another day with the therapy dogs is planned for June 19.

This activity became a reality because of the exceptional efforts of student government President Josh Bloom, who worked throughout the year to make it happen.

The student government thanks Superintendent Allison Brown and Assistant Principal Jay Pilnick for their support in helping to make these puppy dreams a reality.  They also thank Councilman Peter Zuckerman for arranging the use of the Roslyn Community Center for this event.
