Attending first responders were presented with breakfast, Crumbl Cookies and customized gift bags filled with students’ notes of thanks and gift cards.

National First Responders Day is October 28, and it is a day to honor all of those serving on the frontlines. Grateful for their service and sacrifice, American Academy students welcomed and celebrated local first responders with morning coffee, breakfast, high fives, and fist bumps and handmade class banners thanking each responder for their service.

DID YOU KNOW?

When a black and white American flag is displayed with a thin colored line running through it, the line signifies honoring a class of first responders: Gray is for corrections officers, yellow is for dispatchers, red is for fire personnel, white is for emergency medical services, blue is for law enforcement and green is for the military.
