Police make pancakes for kindergarten class at Bronx school

BELMONT -

Students at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School received a special treat Friday.

Police officers did all the cooking, making pancakes for the students at the school’s first Pancakes with the Police event.

Eighth-graders got the chance to get their hands dirty with the officers as they made pancakes for a kindergarten class.

Principal Valerie Savino says the school has a great relationship with their local precinct and these officers really try to interactive with kids in the neighborhood.

They recently had a basketball tournament in efforts to continue to let students know they can rely on police for help. 

The principal says the next event might be a kickball tournament against the officers.
