Agriculture and Bike Safety come together at Fairview!

September 9, 2011

This week, 3rd, 4th & 5th grade students had the opportunity to attend an assembly to learn more about where their food comes from and bike safety. The cool bikes got their attention and helped them understand and learn the importance of wearing helmets. They also learned about farming in Illinois and where their food comes from before it gets to the grocery store or restaurant! One student from each grade won a helmet and all students K-5 received a fortune cookie, made from corn of course. Each fortune cookie had a fact about agriculture. Our students were a perfect audience for our guests!
