Patrol Officer Joseph Scalera read to Mrs. Freeman’s 1st Grade class at Washington Heights Elementary School in Lemoyne this afternoon.
Over the past several years Officers from the Department have been performing daily foot patrols inside the school while it is in session. This year Chief Hope, Lemoyne’s Mayor York and School Principal Trevino thought it would be a great idea to have the Officers interact a little more with the children so they came up with the idea to have an Officer read to different classes weekly.
This Friday was the first such assignment and the West Shore Regional Police Department will continue stopping in one class per week throughout the rest of this school year to “Read to the Students of Washington Heights”.
The Police Chief and School Principal hope that this will allow all the children in Lemoyne and Wormleysburg to get to know their Policemen.
The goal is to have the children feel comfortable approaching a police officer and knowing that they are their friend!
