Last week, HCA had a fire drill run by the local fire department. The firefighters were impressed with how quickly and quietly the students got out of the building. After the drill, the students were allowed to examine the pumper truck. We even received a guided tour by one of the firefighters! He explained to the students about the different parts of the truck and very patiently answered all of their questions. The in-person visit by the fire trucks was great timing to go along with our social studies lesson on fire safety!
*Next week, P.E. is Thursday.
