Boo Boo Day!

You would not believe what happened in our classroom during letter "B!"  Our students had some terrible accidents and ended up with several boo boos!  We had houses falling on people, stars hitting people in the head, tiger attacks, dinosaur bites, people falling down the stairs, and so much more!  Lucky for us, the ambulance and fire department came and took care of all of our boo boos.  We had a great time as Matt Ketteler, Tyler Mitchell, and Curt Gotschall came and spoke to us and showed us some of the equipment.  The kids got to see the firemen in their full dress, learned what to do in the case of a fire, and then they got to see the fire trucks and climb aboard.  They also got to see the ambulance and some of the equipment and then learned about what might happen during a rescue call.

Thank you so much to the Atkinson Fire and Rescue for coming and talking with us, and thank you for all you do!

Techncial Difficulties

My computer containing pictures from the school year is down, so I am unable to post recent pictures from activities.  I am praying that if we get the computer back, I will be able to get the pictures and update the blog.  Thank you for your patience!
