A remedy from Ritz

Ellis Elementary School welcomes new therapy dog

When arriving at Ellis Elementary School for the start of school each morning, students have grown accustomed to seeing a wave of friendly faces from teachers and staff members, welcoming them in for another day of learning.

Recently, students walking into the building are now also greeted by another, somewhat fuzzier face — that of Ritz, a 2-year-old black Labrador retriever.
