When a police friend walks by our storefront windows, the students excitedly jump to the window to wave crazily at them until they wave back. The little gestures that the Zone 3 Police have shown that they care has made a world of difference in our students lives.
We understand that our police friends have a difficult and trying job and sometimes they have rough days, but the times that they stop to smile at a student or praise their sidewalk art are great days and you can tell from their smile it meant a lot to the child.
Thank you so much to all our police friends who work so hard and still find time to ask about sidewalk chalk pictures. You are appreciated and we look forward to more visits in the new year.
