Lucy is a 5-year old golden retriever with an affectionate and friendly disposition. She has a playful and loving demeanour and enjoys cuddling with everyone. Lucy visits George Waters Middle School once a week. Lucy’s job is to provide students with emotional support so that they feel empowered to take on new challenges. Many studies have shown that the simple act of petting, brushing, or playing with an animal has calming effects on students that reduces stress, alleviates anxiety, and places kids at ease helping them to focus on their learning. Welcome Lucy!
