RUSD Students Shop with a Cop


RUSD, the Racine Police Department and the Mt. Pleasant Police Department partnered to host the 3rd annual "Shop with a Cop” on Saturday, Dec. 16.

During the event, sixty RUSD students, nominated by school staff for demonstrating a good attitude, hard work and exemplary behavior, were each paired with a uniformed officer and sent on a shopping spree. 

Each student is allotted an amount of money to spend on gifts for their family members and themselves. The police officers help the students shop and then get their presents wrapped at gift-wrapping stations staffed by volunteers.
