    Meet Bethel!

    Bethel is our professional therapy dog that was purchased by our wonderful PTA. Bethel is with our guidance counselor, Mrs. Frost, most of the day. She also lives with Mrs. Frost and her family. Bethel is so soft and loves to be petted if we ask first. She is just a puppy so we know not to call her name when we walk by her. We don’t want to distract her while she’s learning to be a good helper here at Harrison School.
