On Friday, September, 18, the second-grade classes of Mrs. Brooke Bolinger and Mrs. Haleigh Sampley from Magazine Elementary decided that for their recent service project they would hold a law enforcement appreciation parade at their school. Being such a wonderful and heartwarming gesture, the entire elementary staff and students participated by making signs thanking their local law enforcement. Officers from Magazine, Logan Co., Arkansas State Police, and Booneville, were on hand to attend the “Thank A Police Officer Parade”.
Second-grade teacher, Mrs. Bolinger expressed her thoughts about the day. “On Friday, second grade held a “Thank You” parade for our local law enforcement. It was a huge success. My husband and brother are both officers so this is something very close to my heart! Now more than ever these officers need to know we appreciate all they do for us and our kids need to know these are the good guys. They are a safe place when help is needed. Thank you to each and every one of our officers who were able to attend the parade! Also, I need to brag on our school and community. The staff at Magazine and the parents showed up BIG time! Snacks and money to purchase snacks were donated. We filled goody bags and sent more snacks with the officers to share. Thank you to all who helped make this a success!”
