Zion, IL. – On Friday, November 9, 2018, Principal Venus Shannon, along with seven ZCMS students had the honor of presenting the Zion Police Department a wonderful picnic lunch. Deputy Chief Henderson, along with 42 other officers were present for the ZCMS picnic. Included in the picnic were signed cards by our staff and students, showing appreciation for everything our Zion Police officers do. Our students were incredibly excited to go on this short field-trip and help set up the table for the officers. The policemen took our students on a tour to visit the station’s jail.
Our students gained additional respect for our law enforcement officers and we got the privilege to thank the courageous, hard-working men and women at the Zion Police Station. All students and staff left with the agreement that they want to create more opportunities to involve our police force in positive ways to interact with our school community.
