On Wednesday, November 27th, Bellmont Elementary School invited all Adams County Law Enforcement Officers to have lunch with students. The purpose of the event was to build better and more positive relationships between students and law enforcement in their community.
Mrs. Christina McKay, the preschool-2nd grade counselor at Bellmont Elementary, is planning monthly lunches to encourage elementary age students to have a stronger connection with law enforcement, talk to police about issues that are important to them and introduce students to a career in the first responder field.
Bellmont Elementary School provided a Thanksgiving Lunch which consisted of turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, green beans, rolls and pumpkin pie.
We wish to thank the United Way of Adams County and the Adams County Community Foundation for making this event (and future lunches during the 2019-2020 school year) possible. "We are so happy and thankful to have had a visit from our area law enforcement right before the holidays. It is a great way to celebrate new friendships between our students and officers and give thanks for the many great men and women that serve our community," shared McKay. "We are looking forward to seeing these relationships build even stronger over the school year!"
