FRANKLIN PARK, NJ - More than 30 students and close friends and family members gathered in the Franklin Park School auditorium during the school's Parent Teacher Organization meeting to induct the first group of Safety Patrol, Tuesday night.
"You are going to have a lot of students here looking up to you as a leader," Officer, Dawn Flanders said. "...You are doing a really great community service to your school and to your friends and to your teachers. So continue to do the good work and continue to make good decisions and make everybody proud."
The students inducted Tuesday are for the fall cohort, in the spring a new group of students will be selected. Vice Principal, Nikki Tatum said the kids that didn't make the Safety Patrol in the fall can make it in the spring, as long as they continue to exhibit model behavior for the rest of the students.
