The students had a BLAST making their gingerbread houses as well as tasting some of the goodies.  We also played with shaving cream during our party.

On October 12, 2018 Engine 7 from the Springfield Fire department came to visit our classroom. They talked to us about fire safety and what we do if there is a fire in our house as well as what to do if our clothes catch on fire. They put on their uniform to show us what they look like if they ever have to come to our house. We also walked around the fire truck to see what is on a fire truck. As they pulled away, they turned on the lights and sirens. Thank you Engine 7!!! Subsequent photos to follow.
