Our friends from the Coulee Region Humane Society Read to Rover program will once again be joining us at Spence with furry pals Anna, Niko, and Olive! We are excited to welcome them to read with our students. Find out more at

This program is so exciting because:

(1) Petting a dog has been found to lower heart rate and stress.

(2) Dogs are great listeners, and they don’t make fun or tease if our readers make a mistake or have trouble.

(3) These dogs are cute and experts at listening to stories!

If you have any questions or concerns about your child participating in this program, please contact your child’s classroom teacher.
