Dylan's School Resource Officer writes to us:
Dylan is a 3rd grade student at Elbridge Elementary School. He is a member of the school's safety patrol and demonstrates to other students, on a daily basis, how to act in a safe manner while on school grounds. His mother Rebecca tells us that Dylan is very satisfied being a safety patrol officer and knowing that he is helping his classmates. She said that when their family is out, Dylan makes sure that it is safe for he and his family to walk in parking lots or driveways and is aware of their surroundings. Rebecca also tells us that "whatever Dylan does, he really gives it his all" and that he wants to do good. Dylan's future career ambitions are to be a Police Officer and a Pastor because he "wants to help the world" and "wants to help people". His mother said that he attends church and Sunday school regularly at Elbridge Community Church and is involved in church plays and musicals. Rebecca also says that Dylan is very quick to help around the house with various chores and is glad tohelp out! We learned that Dylan and his family have driven around the City of Syracuse with small "care packages" made up of cheeseburgers, chap stick, tissues and hand warmers and found people to give those too. Dylan's mom tells us that one gentlemen in particular, had been seen rummaging through a garbage can for food. She said that they gave him one of their care packages and the man smiled from "ear to ear". Dylan later named the man "Smiley" and said that he wanted to find "Smiley and bring him home to adopt and care for. Dylan has a huge heart and genuinely cares for others. Dylan works hard in school and is an energetic student who is enthusiastic about learning. We are proud of Dylan and believe that he is A GREAT KID OF THE WEEK!!
