WES Safety Patrols Students Thank PBSO

Wellington Elementary School’s Fine Arts Academy fifth-grade safety patrols recently had their first meeting of the year. Teacher sponsors Jessica Myerscough, Melissa Perry and Jennifer Allen talked about the importance of giving back to the community. The students and sponsors decided to create thank-you goody bags for local law enforcement officers. Several patrols delivered the bags to the Wellington sheriff’s substation. The students had a great time making the goody bags, but even better, getting to meet the police officers and thanking them for their service to the community. Shown above are students Sydney Lopez, Brianna Eddy and Carly Laborde with Deputy Marie Steakin, Lt. Eli Shaivitz and Capt. Rolando Silva.
