Mrs. Shane's Kindergarten Class at Saint Paul Catholic School knows who the real heroes are in their lives, and it's not Superman or Batman. The true heroes are the policemen and policewomen who protect them daily. In honor of Thank a Police Officer Day on September 19th, the students discussed how these community helpers keep them safe. "Policemen keep the bad guys away from us," said Tilly Kacena. "They give tickets to people who are driving too fast!" said Hank Calhoun. The children then made and delivered thank you cards for every officer on the Valparaiso Police Department. "I can go to a police officer anytime I need help," said Amelia Moore. Now that's a hero!
