  • Frank Porter Graham Elementary Students Go Shopping with Cops

    This year, The Optimist Club of Chapel Hill chose Frank Porter Graham Elementary School to send students as participants in the annual December event, Shop with a Cop. Many of the students had been counting down the hours for weeks. After the children received their special Optimist Club, Rudolph tee shirts, they boarded a bus, and then stared out their windows as they realized they were escorted by nearly a dozen officers on motorcycles and in patrol cars. The students enjoyed a full motorcade from Carrboro, blue lights flashing and sirens blaring, down Old Highway 86, all the way to the Walmart in Hillsborough.

Students at MMS have spent the past few weeks learning about food truck design and marketing, global cuisines and a host of social justice issues, all wrapped into a unit celebrating the local nonprofit, Pupusas for Education, and its parent business, So Good Pupusas.
