Feeling Appreciated at First Responder Breakfast

Officers from across the city were recently invited to attend the Third Annual First Responder Appreciation Breakfast hosted by St. Joseph Catholic School.

Students served breakfast and juice to patrol officers, firefighters and paramedics. This was their way of showing appreciation for the work we do to help others.

“How can we ever adequately thank our first responders for all they do to protect and serve us every day,” said Vice Principal Melissa Gallagher. “Their presence meant so much to us.  St. Joseph Catholic School will continue to pray for their safety daily.”

Officer Tim Hayden said everyone in attendance was reminded of the incredible level of support the community has for its first responders.

“This school, the administrators, teachers and students represent the people that make our city such a great place to live and work,” Officer Hayden said. “This event gave us a feeling of great pride. These kids are the future of Arlington. Some might even decide to become first responders.”

St. Joseph Catholic School was founded in 1995 and serves more than 350 students. It is located at 2015 S.W. Green Oaks Blvd in Arlington.
