  • A Message from Murphy


    Hello! My name is Murphy and I am a very special type of “dawg” on campus here at St. Cloud High School. While I am not a bulldog, or a human, I am a special student with a unique title of an Educational Assistance Dog (EAD). This is also why they gave me such a special classroom. My main classroom is in the Life Lab with Ms. Lucy to assist my friends with unique needs.

    Even though I am a student, and love learning new things, I am here to work. I am here to keep the Life Lab with my special friends, and all my new classmates at SCHS calm, safe, and stress free. You will know when I am working because of my special vest that I wear every day. 

    When you see me with my vest out and about campus, please think of it as a stop sign to ask if I can be pet. I am not being rude if I ignore you, but I am working and my full attention needs to be on my very important job. Please always ask before touching me.

    I am excited to be here. I know SCHS is the perfect school for me!
