Students at Covenant Treated to Comfort Dogs

May 6, 2013

Students at Covenant got a little stress relief during the school day.

Two therapy dogs and a service dog were brought in for students as a way to alleviate stress from final exams.

Seniors, like Ellie McKay and Megan Fey, were especially grateful for the break.

"To walk upstairs and see just cute little puppies laying in the middle of the lobby made me feel so happy, like I got so excited. Yeah it just puts a smile on your face to play with them and hang out with them and pet them. It's fun. It's very comforting after a very difficult exam."

The school has special treats lined up for students each Monday all month long as a way to celebrate the end of the school year.
