West Middle School is excited to announce a new addition to campus.  The Pet Prescription Team will be visiting campus twice per month.  The Pet Prescription Team is a local organization that provides animal-assisted therapy to individuals of all ages.  Animal–assisted therapy facilitates and enhances academics, social skills, motor skills and communication.  The handlers and their dogs graduate from an eight week training program. The dogs are certified with the American Kennel Club as Canine Good Citizens.
