Piglet Comes Home to Pine Park Elmentary!

Pine Park students were treated to an assembly on May 20 featuring the story of Piglet, a deaf and blind puppy adopted by veterinarian Melissa Shapiro and her husband Warren.

Dr. Shapiro brought Piglet and several other members of his pack to the school for a presentation to speak about the Piglet Mindset, an educational program that helps children learn about perseverance and growth in all forms of learning and life outside the classroom. The students got to learn about the story of Piglet from reading Dr. Shapiro's book Piglet Comes Home, as well as see a demonstration of his ability to understand commands through touch and smell. 

Dr. Shapiro, Piglet, and the rest of the pack, will be visiting East Elementary School in Brentwood on May 22 to provide a similar message to the students there.
