Giblyn Elementary School’s fourth grade classes welcomed Freeport Village police officers to the school for a special assembly in which they officially adopted officers as part of the school’s annual Adopt-a-Cop program.    

Giblyn Principal Amy Lederer welcomed the officers and thanked them for their participation in the program and the fourth grade students showed their appreciation by performing the song “Peace, Love and Happiness.”   

A student representative from each class spoke about the Adopt-a-Cop program and thanked the officers for all they do in the community. Two students from each classroom announced who their adopted cop for the school year would be. At the conclusion of the program, the students returned to their classrooms with their adopted cop to get better acquainted, and to discuss the importance of police officers and their role in keeping the community safe.  

Throughout the school year, the officers will act as mentors visiting the classes, writing letters to the students in their assigned classes and hosting virtual meetings to help build a lasting relationship with the Freeport Village Police Department

Message from the Superintendent: Thanksgiving Wishes

November 2022

Dear Freeport Families,

As the air gets colder and crisper and the leaves begin to fall in a cascade of color, it is both a reminder of the change in season and the special time of year that is upon us. Thanksgiving is here once again. Time for family and friends, abundant feasting and, most importantly, a time to reflect with gratitude on our lives. We can be thankful this year that the changes and challenges brought by the pandemic are beginning to fade. While we still practice precautions, our lives have returned to a pattern of normalcy. There is so much we have to appreciate each and every day. Thanksgiving is a truly special celebration with the focus is on appreciation, sharing, kindness, loved ones and caring for those less fortunate. Rather than a once a year event, it should be how we live our lives daily. As Changemakers, we can make all the difference in the lives of those around us as well as ourselves.

Living with an attitude of gratitude is more than a cliché. We get so caught up in the demands and stresses of daily life that we forget to appreciate who and what we have in our lives. It is important for our health and well-being to take the time to relax, find peace within and reflect on the blessings present in our lives.

May we always be thankful for what we have and willing to share with those who are in need.  Wishing you all the warm, wonderful memories of time spent with your family and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your dear ones.

Best Regards,

Dr. Kishore Kuncham
