Tomorrow, 5/3/2017, is Crossing Guard Appreciation Day in Park Ridge. If you student(s) cross any of our major streets to get to school there is a good chance one of these dependable civil servants is there to assist them, rain or shine. Please encourage your kids to take a minute thank them and shake their hand tomorrow. http://www.parkridge.us/assets/1/Events/ProclamationCrossingGuards2017.pdf

I remember having fond memories of my crossing guard in Elmhurst. He even hosted a picnic for all his little ducklings during the summer.

Thanks, John Moran. Crossing guards put up with a lot from the so-called adults in cars, from cursing to swerving. They literally risk their lives to cross our kids safely. A quick "thank you! " is a great idea!
