Thanks to Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, leaders from Litchfield Elementary School District were able to mix and mingle with our partners in school safety at a recent "Coffee With a Cop" event designed to give the community access to law enforcement representatives. Governing Board Member Melissa Zuidema (far left), joined Wigwam Creek Middle School Principal Jenny Tassin (far right) and Dreaming Summit Elementary School Principal Sarah Lewis to discuss traffic and campus safety. These informal opportunities to make connections help us promote safety and wellness in our schools. By building strong relationships, we can work in partnership to respond to crisis when necessary. It was a particularly enjoyable experience because the detectives we visited with also had students in our award-winning schools. To Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and all of our law enforcement partners, we say, "Thanks a latte!"
