First grade students from Timber Trace Elementary School created heartfelt and sometimes funny notes thanking Palm Beach Gardens Police officers for their work last week.
The students wrote to the police who kept them safe while a man with a shotgun roamed the streets not far from their school on 117th Court North Thursday. Police have since identified the man as Anthony Paul Droscoski-Ferrara, 19-year-old from Jupiter.
The colorful drawings with creative spellings featured expected sentiments such as “Thank you for keeping us safe” and “You are the best,” while including jokes.
Take this excerpt from a note signed “with love” from Brian and Lilly: “You guys are the best officers. You saved our school and us. What is the best thing to put in a pie? Your teeth.”
Another note, which really just got right to the heart of the matter: “Why did the police officers cross the road? To save the school.”
Of course, kids say the dardnest things: “You are so so so so so helpful. We are so happy that you put the bad people in jail.”
