SAN BERNARDINO, CA- The District’s newest and cutest hope maker enjoys long walks, chew toys, and tasty treats.
Hope, a six-month-old chocolate lab, is the District’s first mascot and comfort dog. Hope made her public debut on September 19, when her caretakers introduced her to the San Bernardino City Unified School District’s (SBCUSD) Board of Education. Hope, the beloved pet of Superintendent Dr. Dale Marsden and his family, was officially sworn in as a comfort dog during the Board meeting.
She is continuing her training as a comfort dog that will bring smiles to the SBCUSD community during and following stressful events.
“Her name is very fitting because Hope will bring joy and optimism to the children of this community,” Marsden said. “Our students are under various pressures, and now we can count on Hope to comfort them.”
