This week we learned all about safety! We learned about the job of a firefighter and the tools they use. We learned all about Stop, Drop, and Roll, and evacuation plans. We also did an experiment showing that fire needs air, fuel, and heat. A BIG thank you to Johnson Fire Department for coming and taking to us about fire safety and showing us all of their equipment!
As Veterans Day approaches, and we begin to think about the holiday season, we have decided to collect items and create care packages for deployed soldiers. This is a great opportunity to for us to thank the heroes that defend our Country and freedom, and to spread cheer during the Holidays! The class with the most donations will get a prize! (If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Long.)
Donation List: All items must be sent in by Friday, November 18th.
