Catholic Schools around the country kicked off Catholic Schools Week on January 31st. On Monday, February 1st, 2nd graders at St. Mary Catholic Community School were treated to a virtual tour of the Crown Point Emergency Management Agency garage as part of a day celebrating community heroes. Students learned about where the EMA originated, how the department has changed, and what kinds of work the department does in the City of Crown Point. Principal Tom Ruiz stated, “the video tour was very informative.” Students at St. Mary‘s were also encouraged to dress as their favorite community hero on this day, and also made thank you cards for community heroes throughout Crown Point and the region. St. Mary’s School is grateful to Director Mike Wysocki for taking the time to virtually teach the second graders about the EMA and the good work this department does to keep the city moving safely.
