Readington’s Finest joined the
Whitehouse staff on Valentine’s Day for a dessert party! February is Caring Month at Whitehouse
School, and the teachers cooked up something sweet for the local police force. They baked and packaged cookies, compliments
of the Whitehouse School Bakery!
School Principal Dr. Ann DeRosa said,
“We wanted to find a special way to honor the police during our school’s month
of caring. Our police officers have unpredictable days
and are ever so willing to put all others before themselves. We support them, appreciate them, and care about them! We wanted to take a moment to put them first,
like they do for us every day.” After
the party, each officer received a container of cookies to take home.
At their recent school Town Hall Meeting,
Whitehouse staff praised the students for their service efforts and let them
know that the adults would be taking a turn at giving back to the community
this month. As an official 2017 New
Jersey School of Character, currently under review for national recognition,
Whitehouse School has been pairing their character trait of the month with a
service project. In September, the Character
Education Committee decided to give back to the local Men in Blue ….to let the police know they need them… and care about them, too!
Each guest received a container of goodies to take home,
