Each week First Graders at Johnson Elementary School are treated to a very special mystery reader. The students have no idea who it’s going to be until the mystery reader walks in. This time it was our own Southlake Chief of Police Stephen Mylett. The students were really excited to meet the Chief and he thoroughly enjoyed reading to the kids. “Education is so important to our young people. I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to encourage students to read and learn as much as they can and hopefully influence them a positive way,” said Chief Mylett.
Chief Mylett read, “The Day in the Life of a Police Officer and Officer Buckle.” The kids loved it and afterwards they were able to ask the Chief lots of questions. Chief Mylett also gave each student a Southlake Police Officer badge.
School teachers and administrators from Johnson Elementary said they really appreciated the Chief taking time out of his busy schedule for the kids. The students also made “Thank you” cards for the Chief. Here’s a big “Shout out” to the First Graders at Johnson Elementary!
