On Wednesday we had a presenter from red cross come and talk about fires and earthquakes.  Each student received a pillowcase to decorate and take home with information about natural disasters.

I have many photos to post from the las few weeks.   I will begin with our field trip Kids Don't Float.

Students are practicing getting back in a boat after it has tipped over.
