Principal's Message

{title}
I can’t believe we have come to the end of the first nine weeks of the 2014-2105 school year here at McCarthy Teszler. We have enjoyed many activities this first nine weeks with our students. Much of my time this first nine weeks has been utilized with getting to meet many of our parents and working with our students. In working with the staff here, we are striving to evaluate and constantly improve our practices for students. The staff here at McCarthy Teszler is the finest and we are striving to become a model program for students with disabilities here in our state.
Thanks!

During this activity, students may have the opportunity to throw a ball for the dog to fetch, pet the dog, and participate in other short interactions with the dog based on the child’s interest. This begins in January – March for our elementary students and work skills students. These dogs with Paws to Care have visited hospitals, shelters, and retirement homes and must meet certain health standards. Positive behavior in our students has been observed when therapy dogs visit. Click “Read More” or the arrow to see pictures from the visits!
