Cookies For Courage at Holy Cross School

In our favorite event of the year, Holy Cross School continued their tradition of honoring emergency responders with their annual "Cookies For Courage" event.  We love seeing the students and staff and we love the cookies!

This event was the invention of Riley Sisk after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  Riley was a 6th grade student at the school when the attacks occurred.  She developed the idea to have a meaningful event that honored all the first responders and remembered the sacrifices made.  This event has been going on ever since. 

Police Officers, Firefighters, and Paramedics are honored each year at this ceremony.  At the end of the ceremony we are presented with plates and plates of delicious cookies to bring back and share with our staff. 

This year they made and distributed wristbands to commemorate the event.  

A heartfelt THANKS to Holy Cross School Principal Michael Hooper and all the staff at Holy Cross School.  Huge THANK YOU'S to all the students and their parents.  And finally a massive THANK YOU to Riley Sisk for starting this wonderful tradition.  We are truly honored by this great ceremony and outpouring of support for us.
