The Leo F. Giblyn School hosted its annual Adopt-A-Cop event, as part of the school’s commitment to help students build lasting relationships with local law enforcement. This program is designed for fourth-grade classes to team up with a member of the Village of Freeport police.

Under the direction of music teacher Shannon Abramovitz, students entertained police officers with several performances, including “Many Thanks Freeport Police!” with lyrics written by Ms. Abramovitz. Students performed the song in nine different languages, including English, Spanish, Dutch, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Hawaiian, and expressed their sincere gratitude for the sacrifices the police officers make for their local community. 

After each class was paired with an officer, students escorted the officer back to their classrooms, where each officer spoke about the significance of being a good citizen and highlighted that their top priority is to protect them.
