THS Pets

We love our pets at The Harris School

Pets provide:

  • increased sensitivity and awareness of feeling and needs of others-both animals and humans
  • a sense of responsibility
  • the opportunities to see, feel, touch and make connections
  • less tension in the classroom

Our pets include Buddy, a trained therapy dog; April, a Russian tortoise; Breez & Chubby, guinea pigs; and Squirt, a soft shell turtle.
