Mintonye third graders had the privilege of a visit from Officer Wilson and his partner Joeri from the Lafayette Police Department in December. Officer Wilson spoke to the class about his job and working with Joeri. He then showed the students some of the work that Joeri does when he is on the job. "I really liked watching Joeri and seeing how when Officer Wilson gave him a command he obeyed," Gabriel Owens.
To prepare for Officer Wilson's visit Third Grade read Aero and Officer Mike by Joan Plummer Russell. The class loved being able to extend their learning from their reading story this week.
"We learned so much about how the dog and police officer really work together as a team. We thought Joeri was really smart and we really liked seeing him play and petting him. The vest that he wears was really heavy! We loved having them visit!" Sentiments shared by Mrs. Tilley's class.
