Johnstown Elementary school is taking a unique approach to learning. They’re the only district in our region to have a service dog. This pup is helping motivate kids in the classroom. Meet Vanna! This service dog is giving students academic, social, and emotional support.
The Golden Retriever is there to help kids feel more connected to school, become more confident in their work, and help them when they’re feeling upset. Vanna has two handlers — Assistant Principal Moore and the school Psycologist. Both went through a 2-week intensive training session with the Golden Retriever before she came to the school.
