Reinhard’s Student Advisory Council presented a $300 donation to Canine Companions for Independence, an organization that supplies dogs to individuals with disabilities. During the fundraising event, students each colored the picture of a puppy and brought it to school with a donation of one dollar.  

The students also received an opportunity to meet service dogs Bamboo II, Hooley, Hubert and Tea and their handlers during an assembly about the importance of service dogs. They learned that they are trained to learn 35 commands for 18 months prior to attending Puppy College. Most importantly, the students learned that kindness goes a long way in training a dog.
