The Helena-West Helena Police Department held a Christmas party for a few KIPP Students Friday, December 14, 2018.

The party was complete with gifts and a cookout, featuring grilled cheeseburgers and hot dogs cooked on a grill named “Big A” by PD staff member.

Each child got to choose a gift after the meal. With happy faces and gifts in hand, the KIPP students sang a song of thanks to Chief James Patrick Smith, the PD staff, as well as to Mayor Elect Kevin Smith, at the Helena-West Helena Police Department.
