BEMIDJI -- To show their support for staff and students at Central Elementary School, Bemidji City Councilors Audrey Thayer and Daniel Jourdain delivered some sweet treats to the school on Friday, April 23.
"We just appreciate you," Thayer said to staff while passing out pieces of chocolate cake.
Students in kindergarten through third grade came in with classmates and each took a piece of cake back to their classrooms to enjoy at their desks.
Central Elementary, which is in Bemidji's Ward 1, will be closing after this year due to budget cuts within the Bemidji Area Schools district. Thayer is the Ward 1 city councilor and Jourdain serves in the at-large council position.
Students and families were recently informed of where they will go to school next year and teachers and staff at Central will find out next week where they will be headed.
