As part of Catholic Schools week, St. Bernadette students brought pizza and salad to the Westlake Police Dept. on Jan. 28.
The treat was met with gratitude and appreciation by the WPD.
Here is Capt. Guy Turner’s letter of thanks to the school:.
Mr. John Stipek, Principal
St. Bernadette School
2300 Clague Rd.
Westlake, OH 44145
Dear Principal Stipek;
On behalf of the men and women of the Westlake Police Department, I offer my sincere thanks to the students of St. Bernadette School who brought pizza and salad for lunch today in celebration of Catholic Schools Week.
We enjoyed it very much. As a longtime member of the parish, a product of 16 years of Catholic schooling and the parent of two Catholic school students, as well as a police manager, I am most impressed by the thoughtfulness of the student body, who took some time to show gratitude to their police officers and firefighters.
Your public safety officials will always be there when you need them. Please keep us in your prayers, especially when we must deal with those who choose not to live out those critical values taught by your teachers and parents.
Captain Guy Turner
