Students at David G. Burnet Elementary learned lessons about self worth, courage, and empathy with some help from several four-pawed friends.
Dogs of Character brought special rescued dogs to the Dallas ISD school to teach students helpful lifelong lessons. The school assembly tied together a positive character trait with each dog brought out to the stage.
Since dogs have significantly better and more sensitive hearing than humans, the students waved their hands in the air instead of clapping to show their appreciation. After the assembly, students gently used two fingers to pet the dogs
