 National Dog Day is Every Day at Wilkins

Dogs feel extra special on August 26th as we celebrate National Dog Day to show how much we appreciate the unconditional love and companionship they provide! Wilkins Elementary shares this love and appreciation every day with Tully (pronounced to-lee), a professional therapy dog who joined the school family this year.

Tully, a 14-month-old black labrador retreiver, is Guidance Counselor Nick Mohwinkle's right-hand dog; he is her primary handler. Since joining the Wilkins family, Tully has already begun to make a positive connection with the students and staff. "You can't look at her and not smile," said Mr. Mohwinkle.

Tully is quite versatile and helps students through stressful and difficult situations they face. Students can even earn reward time with Tully to read with her or play catch with her. "Kids really love her," Mr. Mohwinkle said, "they really want to spend time with her as she is another companion to love."

As Tully wanders the hallways with Mr. Mohwinkle every student smiles and waves to her. Mr. Mohwinkle shared, "This program has already done wonders for our school. Students look forward to school every day because of Tully's presence."

 Welcome Back Linn-Mar!

Novak Elementary first grade students in Mrs. Bowman’s class were excited to start their first day of school bright and early on August 23rd. Students quickly made friends at the beginning of the day and were busy crafting artistic masterpieces welcoming them to first grade. Morning announcements and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance followed. Mrs. Bowman has 23 students in her class and this is her third year at Novak Elementary.

We’re glad you’re back, Linn-Mar, enjoy the 2016-17 school year!
