6th Grade Thanks Tinley Park Police, Fire and Public Works at Breakfast
The 6th grade class welcomed representatives of the Tinley Park Police, Fire and Public Works departments to Central Middle School Thursday, April 2, to express gratitude for their service in the community.
Students presented hundreds of handmade “Thank You” notes to the many in attendance. Miss Amy Sandow’s advisory class along with other 6th grade classrooms created a video where students personally thanked police, fire and public works for the times when they helped a family member or responded to a school building call.
“I would like to thank the Tinley Park Police, Fire and Public Works representatives that graciously attended our 6th grade appreciation assembly,” Miss Sandow said. “We are so grateful for all that you do on a daily basis."
Miss Sandow’s class organized the event, and her advisory students presented to a packed crowd of students and faculty in the 6th grade wing of the building that morning. After the presentation, the advisory class escorted the representatives to a breakfast provided by the school.
Steve Neubauer, the Chief of Police in Tinley Park was extremely grateful for the school’s efforts. “It just made my day,” he said of the event. “It made me and all of the other officers feel very appreciated,” he said.
He added that as of late, “people have stopped thanking the police, pretty much. It was just a little bit of a shot in the arm to remind us why we do our jobs.”
Miss Sandow was very pleased with the event and her student’s efforts. "From student presentations to heartfelt stories, the assembly was a success thanks to the diligent work of our awesome 6th graders!” she said.
