FRUITLAND — Third grade students at Fruitland Elementary School received a visit on Jan. 10 from a furry friend; Sgt. Ben Key and his K-9 officer, Axel. The duo gave students an idea of what their partnership means for the community as a whole.
“This is the 5th year that Sergeant Key and Axel have visited [Fruitland Elementary] 3rd graders,” wrote Third Grade Teacher Nicole Bergam in a Friday email. “It is a great opportunity for students to get a real life experience of being around a working dog.”
