Wow! It has been a loooong time since I've visited with you!
So much has happened. I was off for two weeks to take care of my daughter after the birth of her second child. Then a memorial service for both of my in-laws. They were 90 years old and married for 70 years. God was so good through the years and provided many blessings in their lives. After all that it was hard to get back into a routine with school and home.
Several grades (2-5) from our school were able to attend a performance at our nearby two-year college campus. Field trips are always fun! The actors were all local elementary and high school students from our local region.
Fire Safety Day ended our week. Our local firefighters did an outstanding job educating the students on ways to stay safe. The presentations included: dress up in fire safety gear, up close look at fire trucks, operating a fire hose, dive team safety, rescue and safety when fighting fires in remote areas, and several more.
Thank you, Firefighters for a wonderful learning opportunity!
As a follow up to our safety morning, students worked to build a house with escape routes. The partners discussed how to get out of a burning house and what exits could be used. So much good conversation and idea exchange.
Although, one group did struggle with figuring out how to build a house. One student wanted everything her way and her partner came to me somewhat frustrated. It's difficult to try to make partners work together. That will be skill we will have to work on.There were many more things from last week, these few were just the highlights.
Until next time,
