Firefighters come to Jackson!

We started with some APS police officers/firefighters coming to the campus to teach us about safety! They gave us some great tips! “Stay low and go” and “stop, drop, and roll”. Also do you have a meeting place for your family in case of a fire?

Next our local fire station came to show us their firetruck and teach us more about fire safety. Did you know you should sleep with the door shut? We had a blast learning about the truck and some lucky students even got to use the hose!

Did you try telling time with the Sundial your child brought home? We had a fun time learning about telling time using natural light and talking about how clocks have changed over time to the iWatches some of us have today!
