Allard Elementary students in Mrs. Barnhart's kindergarten class reflected on Patriot Day as the nation remembered the 18th anniversary of 9/11 this week.
Mrs. Barnhart first read Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann to spark a conversation about how first responders serve our community.
Next, students wrote notes to a police officer expressing thanks for how they impact their life. Examples included appreciation for "capturing the bad guys" and "keeping us safe."
The class completed the project by coloring the thank you cards.
Thank you to all our first responders and those who serve our nation!
