Santa Cops 2020

To spread holiday cheer to Flower Mound families in need, the Police Department and Flower Mound Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association (FMCPAAA) are teaming up for the annual Santa Cops program.


Due to the pandemic, toy donations will not be accepted and no collection bins will be placed around Flower Mound this year. Instead, donations will only be accepted in the form of checks (made out to FMCPAAA), Visa or other equivalent gift cards, and gift cards to Dick’s Sporting Goods, Academy Sports + Outdoors, Target, Best Buy, and Kohl’s.


Donations will be accepted Monday, October 26 through Wednesday, November 25, and “shopping days” will be scheduled with all participants prior to Christmas.


All donations can be dropped off in a donation kiosk located in the FMPD Lobby, located at 4150 Kirkpatrick Lane. To refer a family for the program and find additional information, visit www.flower-mound.com/santacops.


Family Referral


If you know of a family who needs Santa Cop's help this Christmas, please complete and return the online form by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25. Completed forms can be handed in at the Police Station, 4150 Kirkpatrick Lane, or via email. Please keep in mind, the number of families that we can assist is dependent on the number of donations we receive.

Counselor's Corner

Each year we cover different topics mandated by the state during Jag Time. Our goal is to prepare our students as they grow in their social and emotional maturity. Please take a look at the information on these topics prepared for parents.

DE-STRESSING

Here are a few more stress relieving tips:
  • Wear calming colors (blue, green, grey, purple).
  • Make a list of things you're grateful for.
  • Play with your pet!
  • Take a picture of yourself in nature.
  • Clean up your workspace.
  • Create a planner for the week.
