Reading Program at Acworth

Acworth Elementary School again welcomes CAREing Paws, the Georgia Chapter of the National Organization of R.E.A.D. R.E.A.D. stands for Reading Educational Assistance Dogs. We now have our very own team consisting of a handler and a R.E.A.D dog. Ms. D and Bear have been trained to support the reading program here at Acworth. Bear loves to hear students read stories to him, so he has the pleasure of listening to our students read 2 days a week during the ASP/RSP hours. Bear is an All-Star dog because he loves to read!


Congratulations to
