New wellness center hosts furry friends every Thursday


The new Oceanside High School Wellness Center hosted its first of many therapy dog appearances on Sept. 15. Thanks to a grant made possible by former state senator Todd Kaminsky the center is nearly fully open. The center will continue to have therapy dog visits every Thursday.

The Wellness Center, which is nearly complete, only needs a few more finishing touches such as some furniture and other items to order. In the meantime, the high school Mental Health Task Force has been seeking student and staff input since first receiving the grant, offering their own ideas on the center’s appearance and activities to be taking into consideration.

An official ribbon cutting ceremony will be scheduled once the finishing touches are complete.
