Floral Street students welcome special guests
By Molly McCarthy, Contributing Writer
Shrewsbury – With over 100 classes to choose from in the Floral School Summer Enrichment Program, students are able to attend classes that suit their particular interests.
On June 27 Kristin Hartness visited the “So You Want to Be a Veterinarian” class with her service dog, “Asha.” Hartness talked with the kids about what it means to be disabled and how service dogs help children with disabilities live more independently. Hartness is the executive director of Canines for Disabled Kids, a non-profit organization that supports the creation of child-canine service teams to promote independence and social awareness.
Shrewsbury firefighters Nick Vincequere and Shawn Green were also at the school to show kids in the “Balls, Cars, Trains Things That Go” class what a fire
truck looks like up close. The kids were also allowed to get up into the truck and learn more about how it works.
The Floral School Summer Enrichment Program is open for kids in Pre-K through fourth grade and runs June 24 –July 25.
