Gracie and Mrs. Konidis
  • Gracie is our GMS therapy dog and loves to be at school.

    She is certified through the Alliance of Therapy Dogs.

    Gracie is on campus for all of our students and staff. Everyone benefits from having a dog present on campus to greet them and comfort them. Gracie improves everyone's mood and reduces anxiety with a wag of her tail. She encourages students to open up to the counselor.

    There are a lot of studies you can read that tell the benefits of a therapy dog on campus, or you just need to walk the halls of GMS with Gracie to see the benefits for yourself.
