 [Letter to Parents] [Principal Approval for Zeus in the Classroom]  [MPS Policy for Animals in Classrooms]

Zeus in class

Zeus a Service Dog in training.  

His dad is a Golden Retriever, his mom a black standard Poodle.  That makes him a "Goldendoodle".  He was born Feb 2016 in Ohio and has come out here to Arizona to learn the art and skills of helping a child with physical disabilities.  Most importantly, he will be learning how to use these skills in the classroom.  

 

 

While at Fremont, Zeus will be learning daily skills such as:

  1. Avoiding public distractions
  2. Lay at the feet of a caregiver under a desk
  3. Assist humans in daily tasks like retrieving dropped items
  4. Opening and closing doors
  5. Turning on/off lights
  6.  And of course, Companionship.  

If you have any questions about Zeus and his time here at Fremont, please do not hesitate to contact me via Email or Phone.

Oh yea, then there's Mr. Shelton
