Therapy Dog Visits Valley Forge

therapy dog visitValley Forge students enjoyed reading and spending time with some special visitors. Mary Tarkany, a Brookville student and daughter of 6th grade Valley Forge teacher Melissa Tarkany, is a therapy dog handler. Mary and her therapy dog, Teddy, traveled around to various classrooms discussing what a therapy dog does and the requirements needed to become a handler. Mary’s goal was to bring joy to the students while also inspiring others to become a therapy dog handler. The Valley Forge family truly enjoyed having them join us for the day!
