Therapy dogs pay a visit to RE

Ransom Everglades upper school students enjoyed engaging with lovable certified therapy dogs midway through the AP examination period. Students thronged to the school's wellness tents during the mid-day break on June 8 to meet the friendly dogs from Heel 2 Heal, a South Florida non-profit agency. Grace Burke '24, the vice president of the Student Wellness Board and Council, arranged for the visit as a means of providing students a respite from the rigors of exams. Students petted, hugged and photographed the dogs.
