New Visions’ students recently paired up with furry buddies for the school’s new Pup Reading Partners program. In its first year, reading teacher Mrs. Lori Golbert created the initiative in hopes of building confidence and fluency in readers. 

The dogs and puppies are from the Guide Dog Foundation in Smithtown and are brought into the school by Mrs. Toni Pincus, a New Visions retired nurse. After selecting a book, readers sit with their new four-legged friend by their side.

The activity brings joy to students and relaxes the dogs.
