Blackford Primary School has gone to the dogs this week! Ultimate Canine brought over some of their puppies that are participants in the Puppies in Training program. According to Ericka Rogers, school social worker at BPS, "These canines will be used as therapy dogs in schools, hospitals, and other facilities all over the country. We were happy to be a part of their training and look forward to future visits with them!"

Mr. Yencer thanked custodians and maintenance staff for all their hard work over the summer. Principals welcomed the new staff members in their buildings. What a great start to the day!
