St. John's and PetHelpers Host Puppy Room
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, St. John's High School hosted an on site "Puppy Room." Students visited the room to interact with some furry friends and relieve stress. Spending time with a four-legged friend can decrease levels of the primary stress hormone, cortisol, and can prompt an increase in the production of "feel-good" hormones.
The Personalized Learning model at CCSD is being heralded at the national level, and promises to revolutionize the classroom by enabling each student to achieve at his or her absolute highest potential.
