Smithtown Central School District elementary school students sent a very special thank you to local heroes in advance of Thanksgiving.
The Smithtown Teachers’ Association organized a card-writing campaign to thank Suffolk County police officers from the local 4th Precinct.
The messages included students completing the sentence, “I am thankful for the police because …”
• The police make me feel safe.
• They help us get home if we are ever lost.
• They put their life on the line to help others.
• They help people that need help.
