Poquoson Primary School Students Read with a Furry Friend

Gypsy Visit

Poquoson Primary students always look forward to weekly visits from their furry friend, Gypsy, and her owner, Wendy Keene of Just Say K9 Sports.  Gypsy, a Bernese mountain dog, is a therapy dog who loves to visit with the children. Every week, Gypsy and Wendy visit classes, allowing students time to read a book of their choice to Gypsy and Wendy. Not only do the students love visiting with Gypsy, but reading to her also gives our young learners another opportunity to read out loud and practice their reading fluency. Gypsy and Wendy have truly become part of the Poquoson Primary School family and Gypsy’s calm and friendly nature is always a welcome presence throughout the building!
