The Pitman Police Department was the lucky recipient of some of the best cookies in the world as we were presented with our hard earned Reading Challenge Victory Cookies by Mrs. Beth Franchi. Recently, Memorial School students challenged the PPD to be part of their on-going Reading Challenge. By the skin of our teeth, the PPD came out victorious. The winners however, are the students who have received the gift of imagination, intrigue, knowledge and joy through their reading. In addition, the students will be rewarded for their participation with a K-9 demonstration by K-9 Ranger and his handler/partner, Ptl. EJ Parker later in the school year. Chief McAteer will also be reading to Mrs. Thorpe's 2nd grade class for their fabulous effort in achieving 100% participation during the challenge.
