Our Third graders had their annual Fire Prevention Week visit from our local fire fighters today. This year's theme is "Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware Fire can happen anywhere". Students were encouraged to draw a poster using the theme. This year's first place winners are: Paige Reinstad (G1), Casey Travis (G2), Colin Winkler (G3), Hailey Garcia (G4), and Marissa Schneider (G5). Congrats to all the winners and to our second and third place finishers as well. We appreciate everyone who submitted posters. We had a great many this year for them to judge. The day started with an "all school" fire drill run by the fire department The students learned fire safety, having an exit plan, and all about the trucks and what they carry and they each got to practice hose duty. A great annual event, thank you Cambridge Volunteer Fire Squad/EMS
Our first graders had a program about the American Flag, each got their own flag to take home.
SDC will be offering their "Grief Group" again for students needing this important service.
Our kindergartners were the first grade to enjoy Chef In the Classroom this year. Their event was based on the book, Stone Soup. A school garden section was planted specifically with this is mind. They used the vegetables from their plot in the making of Stone Soup that Chef Gene Gowan made with an assist from Mrs. G. I. The soup turned out delicious and the kids enjoyed the experience. Thanks to all who have helped with the school garden.

Teachers, Mr. McGowan, bus personnel and even Bruiser helped them along the way. We would like to thank everyone for participating in this important reminder for students.
