Kindergarten Firefighter Visit at Spanish Oaks

Submitted by kali.brown on Fri, 09/26/2014 - 18:25

Today our Kindergarten students had a visit from one of our local firefighters, Mr. Matt Taylor.   We loved learning about his job and what he does as a firefighter in our community.  We also learned what we could do as Kindergarten students to help him with his job.  We can have an escape plan with our families in case of a fire and practice what to do with them.   We even dressed up Mrs. Robinson in a fireman's suit to show that firemen are not scary.   Then we got to go outside and sit in the cool firetruck.  Thank you, Mr. Taylor!
