San Mateo Elementary Reads and Meets Dog Heroes
San Mateo Elementary enjoyed a fun connection between their book of the month and a particular unit within the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. In February, students in grades K-2 read “Dex, the Heart of a Hero,” which is about a small dog who overcomes bullying to help out his friends. On Friday, February 24, students saw real-life four-legged heroes as a K-9 unit visited the school. Students learned how the K-9s are heroes, much like Dex.
