Cookies for Courage

Atkinson’s student government showed their appreciation to the Freeport Police Department on Nov. 17 by delivering freshly baked cookies and thank-you cards to the local station as part of the “Cookies for Courage” initiative. While there, the students received a tour of the station and learned more about the workplace of those who serve and protect.
Funded by the 21st Century Program, the student government consists of students who act as positive role models in and out of the school setting. Last month, they sponsored “Socktober” and collected new socks to donate to those in need.
