In the spirit of the season, students in Kennett Middle School’s ESL program were recently reading a Christmas Carol and analyzing the character of Scrooge. The class had many discussions about the importance of giving back to others and, as a result, they decided to do a community service project. Before this project, they had many conversations about how the New Garden Police Department provides resources for them as individuals and for the school as a whole. Together, the students decided that the township police were the perfect candidate for the community service project.
After receiving an officer’s name, each student decorated a Christmas ornament and Christmas card to give to that officer. The best part of the project was definitely the officers coming to visit the students. The students were so excited and it made a big impact to see how appreciative the officers were.
