PAWS for Reading

Unfortunately, PAWS for Reading has been temporarily suspended. We hope to begin again soon!

PAWS for Reading
is an interactive student reading program aimed at encouraging students to read aloud in a safe and positive environment without criticism. The Paws for Reading dogs have been thoroughly trained and put through several tests before they are allowed to enter the schools.

Reading is a fundamental skill students need to learn to be successful not only in school, but in life. Research has proven that reading aloud, in a safe and positive environment, helps students develop better reading skills, better self-esteem, as well as a better attitude toward learning.

PAWS for Reading is offered to OBE students by teacher and counselor recommendations. Check out our PAWS for Reading lab, Biscuit, in action:
