Saber Pause

Saber Pause Therapy Dog Event

Saber Pause

Saber Pause's mission is to create a culture of health, resilience and well being for students AND staff at SHS by providing opportunities to practice healthy coping skills and an environment that supports and encourages using these skills.

Our aim is to do this through the Green Bandana Project, Therapy Dogs, and various outreach events. The Green Bandana Project is a mental health awareness and suicide prevention campaign that uses bandanas to support peers in getting help. Therapy Dogs is working with an outside organization to bring therapy dogs into the school for students and staff to get an uplifting break and support. Outreach opportunities and events vary from year-to-year based on student interest and ideas.
