It’s not often that we have four-legged visitors come to the school. So it was quite unusual for the second-grade students to welcome not one, but two, beautiful golden retrievers to their classroom.
Having read a story about the role of service dogs in the lives of people with disabilities, the class welcomed Mr. and Mrs. Greenly, Abraham, and Cooper for a visit. The Greenlys explained how Cooper is being trained to eventually replace Abe, who has been Mr. Greenly’s faithful companion for a number of years. Through the exchange, the students witnessed the deep affection between an owner and his service dog.
Proverbs 18:24 talks about a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Jonathan and David, Ruth and Naomi, Paul and Timothy quickly come to mind. Even more so, in the fifteenth chapter of John, Jesus says that if we obey his commands, we are his friends. His friendship came at a high price: he laid down his life for us.
Friends will go in and out of our lives. But we have One who will never leave us. He is a faithful companion and friend.
The relationship between Abe and Mr. Greenly, along with the introduction of Cooper, his new canine companion, was the focus of a lively question and answer session with the class.
We are grateful for those men and women who have sacrificed so much for the freedoms we enjoy as a nation. Please help us spread the word about our annual Veterans Day Coffee by sharing this flyer. We look forward to welcoming and honoring our veterans.

Lifelong friendships and mentoring relationships can be formed through sports. Congratulations to our middle school cross country team Mason-Dixon Conference medalists!

To precede their study of Shakespeare, eighth-graders shared an Elizabethan Feast. Members of the class portrayed nobles, laborers, and peasants.
